Subaru Legacy vs Hyundai Sonata


Subaru knows that what’s on the inside matters. Whether you’re driving to work or off to explore a new place, you can trust that the Legacy will get you there safely.

The Subaru Legacy comes standard with a rear-vision camera so that even when you're looking ahead, you won’t lose track of what’s behind you. Plus, with standard daytime running lights, you’ll be seen wherever you go.

Now with the available EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, you’ll always have an extra set of eyes on the road. From pre-collision breaking to adaptive cruise control, Subaru has taken safety to a whole new level. It’s so advanced that when the Legacy was equipped with EyeSight®, it received the highest possible score in front crash prevention from the IIHS.

For Subaru, safety doesn’t end on the production line. Even after you drive off the lot, your safety is still our priority. That’s why every Legacy comes with 24-hour roadside assistance for 3 years or 36,000 miles.

Wherever you go, rest assured that the Legacy has got you covered with its eight airbags. The Hyundai Sonata only comes with seven. When it comes to safety, less is certainly not more.

Find Your Legacy


A vehicle’s performance speaks volumes about the brand’s overall philosophy. Subaru supports your ambitious lifestyle, which is why we have engineered the Legacy to go all out. With 34 highway MPG1, you’ll never have to turn down an opportunity.

Every Legacy also comes standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and the Subaru Boxer® Engine, providing you with maximum control and power behind the wheel. In situations where other vehicles may shy away, the Legacy charges forward confidently. While your path may be undecided, you can be certain that anything is possible in the Legacy.

The Sonata comes standard as a front-wheel drive vehicle, meaning that only two wheels are in motion at all times. As an ambitious person, why should you be held back by your vehicle’s limitations? When you’re traveling in the Legacy, the word impossible won’t even be in your vocabulary.

Wherever the day takes you, you can be sure you’ll enjoy the ride. Every Legacy comes standard with Starlink™ in-vehicle technology, bringing you almost endless entertainment options. With the Aha™ smartphone app integration, you’re not limited to listening to music. You can also access news, weather, podcasts, and much more. Plus, you never have to worry about staying connected on the go. With steering wheel controls, you never have to remove your hands from the wheel.

The Sonata’s standard entertainment system doesn’t even compare to Subaru’s. You’re the kind of person who is always ready to go all out. Why should your vehicle’s technology be any different?

Cabin Space

Whoever said a sedan isn’t spacious never sat in a Subaru Legacy. As the leader in its class for interior volume2, the Legacy offers an impressive 104.6 cubic feet of space. There’s plenty of room and comfort for all aboard, even those sitting in the second row.

The Sonata may have a comparable amount of space, but that’s the only category where it even compares to the Legacy. As a whole, the Legacy surpasses the Sonata. After all, the Legacy is much more than a sedan – it’s a Subaru. So why would you waste your money on anything less?
