*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!

The Subaru Legacy VS The Toyota Camry

It is rare that drivers know exactly what car they want and don't need to check out the competition. Most often drivers have a good idea but still do some research to make sure they are getting the best vehicle for them. That it has the safety features they want, is fuel efficient, and is within their budget. So to help our customers in the Salt Lake City area make a well-informed decision by comparing the Subaru Legacy to the Toyota Camry.


When it comes to getting home when the snow starts falling the Toyota Camry is no match for the Subaru Legacy. The Camry is a front wheel drive vehicle that isn't available with all-wheel drive. Would you rather have two wheels turning or four? Every Subaru Legacy comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Which works by having the all-wheel-drive system laid along the center line of the Legacy to balance weight distribution evenly for ideal performance and control. With power being supplied to all four wheels the Legacy has superior traction and control no matter the weather conditions. In addition to the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the Legacy is also equipped with Traction Control system and Active Torque Vectoring for enhanced traction and control as well as better handling and sharper turning.

Tech Features

Features are like sprinkles on a sundae, that little something extra and the Subaru Legacy has a lot to offer. The Legacy is equipped with a standard rearview camera, STARLINK 6.5-inch Multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and Auto-on/off wiper-linked headlights. As well as available heated rear seats, Harman Kardon premium audio system, and LED Steering Responsive Headlights and High Beam Assist.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Integration

Have an iPhone or Android device? Have you been eager to try out the new Apple CarPlay or Android Auto features that are available in select vehicles? Out of these two competitors, only the Subaru Legacy offers these capabilities. The Camry offers neither.

Interior Space & Comfort

When driving in the city many drives wish their car was a little smaller to fit into that tight parking space. But when their car is full of passengers they wish they had a little more interior space. Well, the Subaru Legacy is both; smaller in size with more interior space than the Toyota Camry. The Camry is 192.1 inches long and only offers 100 cubic feet of passenger space with 55.7 inches of rear shoulder room, and 38.3 inches of front headroom. While the Subaru Legacy is 188.8 inches long and offers almost 5 more cubic feet of interior space, 57.3 inches of rear shoulder room, and 40 inches of front headroom.

Both vehicles offer seating for five but your passengers will be more comfortable in the Subaru Legacy.
