2018 Subaru Legacy vs 2018 Subaru BRZ Interior Comparison

Performance Comparison: 2018 Subaru Legacy VS 2018 Subaru BRZ

This is the category in which the BRZ was built to shine! The 2018 Subaru BRZ is motivated by a low-mounted, direct-injected BOXER® engine that generates 205 horsepower. What's more, the BRZ is remarkably lightweight and exquisitely balanced to respond instantly to your every input. All this plus rear-wheel drive makes the 2018 Subaru BRZ one of the most affordable vehicles available that can truly call itself a sports car. Looking for a measure of thrills in a more practical package? The 2018 Subaru Legacy 3.6R Limited generates 256 horsepower for acceleration that rivals the BRZ, all in a stately sedan wrapper. And since the Legacy is all-wheel drive, you'll have grip enough to take every corner with confidence.

2018 Subaru Legacy vs 2018 Subaru BRZ Feature Comparison

Safety Comparison: 2018 Subaru Legacy VS 2018 Subaru BRZ

Though it's equipped with all the electronic and physical safety systems you expect in a modern sports car - including traction control, daytime running lights and a full complement of airbags - there are no available driver assistance features on the 2018 Subaru BRZ. It's designed to reward you for skillful, attentive driving. The 2018 Subaru Legacy, on the other hand, enjoys all these features plus the available Subaru EyeSight® driver assistance suite. For that reason, the Legacy earned the most exclusive safety award in the industry: 2018 Top Safety Pick+ status, based on crash tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
