*While the Camry has a better fuel mileage estimate, it does not offer AWD, which affects MPG estimates. In our opinion, we'd rather have the peace of mind of all-wheel drive with the weather we experience here in the Salt Lake area. After all, mpg hardly matters if you can't reach your destination to begin with!


2018 Subaru Legacy vs. 2018 Toyota Camry

Subaru has a new card to play for Salt Lake City, UT drivers who want to take command of the road in style: the 2018 Subaru Legacy.  This gorgeous midsize sedan returns for the 2018 model year with a few new tricks up its sleeve that improve its looks and overall functionality, making it an ideal choice if you want an updated new ride that appeals to every sense.  But can the Subaru Legacy hold up against challengers like the 2018 Toyota Camry?  Here we will break down the reasons why the Subaru Legacy is the way to go for Salt Lake City drivers.


Subaru Legacy Performance in Winter

Performance

If you want a vehicle to help you manage wet road conditions including cruel Salt Lake City winters and the slew of difficult weather effects that come with them, the Subaru Legacy has your back. Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard on all Legacy models, granting you superior stability and traction, especially in tricky weather. You won't find AWD on the Camry no matter which trim level you go for.

The Legacy's AWD system also helps its fuel efficiency, giving it up to 25 city mpg and 34 highway mpg. To get better efficiency on the Camry, you have to upgrade to a higher trim level and crank up the price point. The standard Legacy is already prepared to help you save more at the pump.


Interior Comforts

Drivers will appreciate the efforts towards making the Subaru Legacy's cabin as comfortable as possible while providing welcome conveniences you may not have even realized you needed. Getting in and out of the car is easy, but with such an inviting cabin, finding the motivation to get out may be trickier than anticipated. With a bit more room for passengers than the Camry, plenty of spots to store small items, and cushy seating covered in high-quality materials, the Legacy's exquisite interior design is expertly crafted with comfort and convenience in mind.

If updated technology is what gets your heart racing, the Legacy has the Camry beat with its STARLINK Multimedia infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. These features come standard on the Legacy, allowing you to easily access certain smartphone apps on the large built-in display.
