Design Comparison Between the 2018 Subaru Legacy and the 2018 Chevrolet Malibu

When considering the design of your next new midsize sedan, we recommend looking beyond the appearance. While the stunning new 2018 Subaru Legacy and the 2018 Chevy Cruze certainly look good, which model is designed to give you more for your money? You'll find more passenger space inside a new Subaru Legacy, allowing the whole family to ride in comfort. When we looked at the ALG residual values for these two midsize sedans, it's clear that the new Subaru Legacy is designed to hold its value far better over time, and this is just the beginning. You'll also enjoy a host of standard features in a new Subaru that will cost more as upgrades in a Chevy.

Performance Comparison Between the 2018 Subaru Legacy and the 2018 Chevrolet Malibu

With similar fuel economy in these two midsize sedans, we were a little surprised to see that the Subaru Legacy offers noticeably more power than the new Chevy Cruze. What makes this advantage even more remarkable is that every Subaru Legacy is equipped with the legendary traction of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. You'll only be able to get a Chevrolet Malibu as a 2-wheel drive car. What's more, tight spaces like driveways and parking lots are far easier to navigate behind the wheel of a new Subaru Legacy thanks to standard variable assisted steering. This adjusts the effort necessary to turn the steering wheel based on how fast the vehicle is traveling and is just one more example of how the new 2018 Subaru Legacy outperforms the Chevy Malibu.

Safety Comparison Between the 2018 Subaru Legacy and the 2018 Chevrolet Malibu

From unpredictable city traffic to twisty mountain roads, it's important to ensure that your next new midsize sedan is as safe as it can possibly be. We're proud to report that the new Subaru Legacy is among just 15 vehicles to earn the prestigious 2018 IIHS Top Safety Pick + distinction. We're also glad to see that the 2018 Chevrolet Malibu performed well in this independent crash and safety testing, but it did come up short of the proven safety that comes with a new Subaru Legacy that earned the highest possible scores across the board. This includes the headlights, where the Chevy Malibu earned the lowest Poor rating. You won't have any issues lighting up the night with the Subaru Legacy headlights, especially when you opt for the available steering-responsive LED headlights. Nothing like it is available on a new 2018 Chevrolet Malibu.
