New Subaru Legacy vs New Toyota Camry in Cumming, GA

2018 Subaru Legacy Cumming GA

For Cumming, GA Area Drivers, It's the New 2018 Subaru Legacy That Pulls Ahead of Its Toyota Competition -- Learn How at Troncalli Subaru

As the market for new SUVs and crossovers heats up in northern Georgia, competitive mid-size car options are becoming as plentiful as ever. That's especially true here in the greater Atlanta area, where rivalry from our hometown of Cumming to that over in Duluth and up in Roswell is some of the stiffest. But it's not every sedan that's designed to stand the test of time and Mother Nature, meticulously crafted for durability and reliability as well as handling enjoyment. Nor is every model first-class when it comes to safety features or the creature comforts and tech savvy you need for the pleasure cruise.

The new Subaru Legacy checks all those boxes, from its 2.5i and 2.5i Premium base to the agile 2.5i Sport, luxurious 2.5i Limited, and high-performance 3.6R Limited trims. Just check out how the new Legacy fares against long-time segment leaders like the Toyota Camry, and we think you'll agree: even the newest of Toyota sedans has a hard time making the same grade. There are more than a few important reasons for that.

  • First, Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard across the lineup, dovetailing our automaker's renowned horizontally opposed SUBARU BOXER flat-four engine. This combination creates the structural balance and optimizes the power delivery needed for the trustworthy capability over uneven stretches of road and through foul weather that our enthusiasts crave. The inline four-cylinder engine standard in the new Camry can't make the same assertion, and it doesn't offer AWD anywhere in the line.
  • Next, a few elements come together to make the 2018 Legacy the better-prepared option for any drive. For one, a higher engine displacement, 2498 cc. That's power output a dash more energetic than that of the 2018 Camry, which results from but 2487 cc. Second, a larger tank, holding up to 18.5 gallons of fuel compared to Toyota's 16.0 gallons, resulting in fewer stop-offs at the pump to interrupt your trip. Finally, a sharper turning circle of 36.8 feet between curbs. Camry offers a slightly bulkier 37.4 feet. That means the Subaru sedan is more maneuverable in tight spaces like parking lots.

  • You can look forward to more room in the cabin overall, too -- a sprawling 104.6 cubic feet, to be sure, meaning better head, leg, and shoulder room in the front as well as more leg and shoulder room in the rear compartment. Camry's total passenger space is only 100.4 cubic feet. Factor in the bigger trunk, 15.0 cubic feet to the other's 14.1, and ditto for cargo space.
  • Safety-wise, both models are rated comparably, taking home five stars overall from the NHTSA for crashworthiness and earning a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK+ rating from the IIHS. The latter includes an across-the-board highest rating of Good along with a superior front crash prevention rating when properly equipped. However, our mid-size sedan offers available situational awareness technology like Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert earlier in the lineup, in Legacy 2.5i Premium. To get it in Toyota's, you have to graduate to the midrange Camry XLE.
  • Finally, a new 2018 Subaru Legacy is the more cost-effective choice, starting out at a total MSRP of around $23,055 compared to 2018 Toyota Camry, at approximately $24,565.
