Accord vs. Legacy: Powertrains

People generally look to Subaru for power and performance, and yet the Honda Accord actually provides more horsepower and torque as standard:

  • 2021 Honda Accord: Makes up to 192 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque as standard.

Honda also lets you choose between transmissions, including:

  • Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode

The Legacy doesn’t let you choose, instead equipping the same system across all trims.

The Accord is characteristically spacious and comfortable – in fact, it provides up to 16.7 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk vs. just 15.1 with the Legacy to ensure you always have room for everything you’d ever want to bring.

Unlike the new Subaru Legacy, it also provides:

  • Standard Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control System
  • Available 12-Way Driver’s Seat with 4-Way Power Lumbar Support

The Honda Accord’s technology is just as impressive as its performance specs and comfort features. Highlights include:

  • Speed-Sensitive Volume Compensation (SVC)
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera

Those features aren’t available at all with the new Subaru Legacy.
