Dependable and sporty, the 2021 Subaru Legacy comes in up to six trims. Our Subaru dealership in Kennesaw explains why this midsize sedan beats the 2021 Honda Accord in several categories. Designed by renowned Japanese companies, both vehicles earn some of the highest safety honors in the industry.

Performance

The 2021 Subaru Legacy at Subaru of Gwinnett is equipped with a 2.5-liter engine block that's made of aluminum alloy. Whipping out 182 net horsepower, the BOXER engine includes four cylinders that oppose each other horizontally for optimum performance. Using normal aspiration, the signature powertrain yields 176 pound-feet of torque at 4,400 RPM. Utilizing a turbocharger, the 2021 Accord's 1.5-L engine delivers 192 hp and 192 lb-ft. This Honda model also offers a 2.5-L hybrid engine that's rated at only 143 hp and 129 lb-ft. However, the 3-Mode Drive System gives you personal control of the hybrid system. We offer the 2021 Subaru Legacy online test drive with a turbocharged 2.4-L engine that adopts the BOXER design. Taking fuel through direct injection, this four-cylinder powerplant kicks out 260 hp. With supplemental assistance from the DAVCS technology, the turbo engine yields 277 lb-ft at tachometer levels above 2,000 RPM. Subaru of Gwinnett also offers an online test drive in this midsize sedan with the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Unfortunately, Honda doesn't offer an AWD system for the 2021 Accord. Nevertheless, this premium model runs on a continuously variable transmission system. You may turn on the Sport Mode to increase the responsiveness of the CVT. Employing the Lineartronic design, the 2021 Legacy's CVT is more dynamic and responsive. For example, you could cycle through eight different gear selections from the Manual Mode. This sporty Subaru sedan also boasts the Active Torque Vectoring for enhanced cornering. Despite its athletic platform, the 2021 Accord doesn't offer any comparable mechanical technologies.

Technology

The 2021 Legacy is fully compatible with the Keyless Access function, which unlocks the driver's door through a verified PIN code. Once you enter the cabin, you will admire a handful of high-tech features, such as the STARLINK Multimedia Plus System. Featuring an 11.6-inch LCD touch screen, this all-new infotainment console delivers the latest and greatest digital applications from Subaru.

However, both midsize sedans offer smooth smartphone linking via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 2021 Subaru Legacy online test drive is available with the STARLINK Safety and Security suite that works on a smartphone. For instance, the Remote Engine Start With Climate Control may be activated through a mobile app. The all-new STARLINK Concierge Services provide excellent guidance for any commute or other occasion.

Rated at only 180 watts, an eight-speaker sound system is standard in some of the 2021 Accord trims. Producing up to 450 watts, 10 speakers are only installed inside the high-end EX-L edition. Both midsize sedans offer 4G LTE Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections for mobile devices.
