The 2014 Subaru Legacy is Now Available in Boulder

If you have been searching for an affordable mid-size sedan in the Boulder area, chances are that you have come across the 2014 Subaru Legacy while exploring vehicles in this segment. The new Subaru Legacy comes outfitted with a variety of noteworthy conveniences, including:

  • Standard Bluetooth wireless smartphone connectivity
  • Available dual-zone air conditioning
  • An available rearview camera
  • A standard USB port

While these accommodations might be enough to sway some shoppers into purchasing the new Subaru Legacy, Boulder-area drivers should consider what the 2014 Honda Accord sedan has to offer. This is because the new Honda Accord is more powerful, more efficient, and offers more cargo capacity than the Subaru Legacy.

The new Honda Accord is powered by a standard 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that produces 185 hp and 184 lb-ft of peak torque for a thrilling, spirited drive. The standard 2.5L flat-4 engine of the new Subaru Legacy is only capable of 173 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque. This means that the new Subaru Legacy isn’t nearly as powerful as the Honda Accord.

To save drivers money at the pump, the 2014 Honda Accord gets an EPA-estimated 24 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway* when its engine is paired with its standard manual transmission. Unfortunately for drivers of the new Subaru Legacy, they will be filling up more often, as it only gets an estimated 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway with the base powertrain pairing.
