Powered Up

The Subaru Legacy gives you two engines to choose from. The standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine produces 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. The second, more powerful option is the available 2.4L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque.

If you’re looking for a little more oomph in your daily commute, though, consider the 2022 Toyota Camry. Its baseline 2.5-liter 4-cylinder motor is capable of reaching 206 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. For even more aggressive drives, the available 3.5-liter V6 powertrain will provide 301 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque.

Meet Your Long-Distance Traveler

Did you know the Toyota Camry is also available with a hybrid powertrain? Yep, you read that right—the Camry has five hybrid trims, which allow you to get the best of both worlds. Its 208-horsepower engine helps drivers achieve an EPA-estimated 51 city/53 highway MPG rating!*

On the other hand, you’ll have to stick with a gas-powered engine on the Legacy, which provides performance benefits. However, if you want to conserve fuel and stay away from the pump, you’ll prefer the Camry.

Your safety is a priority in the Toyota Camry and the Subaru Legacy. Both sedans keep your security front and center by equipping standard driver-assistance aids. These features keep you in your intended lane, protect you from potential collisions, and provide on-road assistance.

Your Security Detail

Driver-assistive and safety technology is common in vehicles on the road today, including the Camry and the Legacy. Each sedan has its own suite of safety features, including:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection: Monitors the distance between your vehicle and frontal obstacles and can even apply the brakes if you get too close.
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist: Alerts you to unintentional lane drift and, in certain situations, can apply gentle steering corrections to keep you on track.
  • Automatic High Beams: When it's dark enough, this system turns on the high beams and adjusts your vehicle’s headlights to traffic.
Making Safe Moves

The 2022 Toyota Camry has a few additional standard features over the Legacy. The standard Road Sign Assist system uses a camera to monitor various road signs. This information is then projected onto the Head-Up Display or the Multi-Information Display.

Since the Subaru Legacy isn’t available with this feature, you’ll have to pay closer attention to posted speed limits and other signs.
