2018 Toyota Camry vs 2018 Subaru Legacy

Car shoppers looking for a new midsize sedan this year have several attractive options to choose from. At the head of the pack is the new 2018 Toyota Camry. This vehicle has been one of the top selling sedans in the United States for years, and for this new update it received some attractive powertrain enhancements and a bold new look. The 2018 Subaru Legacy has also been redesigned for the new model year, with updated side mirrors, a new steering wheel and grille, and enhanced interior noise cancelling technology. In this 2018 Toyota Camry vs 2018 Subaru Legacy comparison, we are going to see how these two models stack up against each other.

One of the most immediate differences is in powertrain options. The 2018 Toyota Camry will be available with three new powertrain options, including the all-new base 2.4-liter four-cylinder, which we believe will be rated for 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Other available powertrains will include a 3.5-liter V-6 engine and a hybrid combined powertrain. The 2018 Subaru Legacy, in contrast, will also come with a standard 2.4-liter flat four-cylinder base engine, but it will be rated for only 175 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. A 256-horsepower 3.6-liter flat 6-cylinder engine will also be available.
