These days, growing and changing families are upgrading their everyday drives for more space and better accommodations, and with an eye on all-weather capability to boot. As a result, crossovers and SUVs are taking over the market for new vehicles. That's especially true here in our Danbury neighborhood -- one of southwestern Connecticut's snowier and more frigid locales. However, the mid-size sedan segment, not to be outdone, is becoming more competitive than ever, with automakers outfitting their offerings with winning combinations of the latest features to make that grade. Nowhere is this more pronounced than in the new Subaru Legacy. Just ask the automotive research and value experts at Kelley Blue Book.

In a recent review of the flagship Subaru sedan, they make the fascinating claim that it "may not be the first choice, but for many, it may be the best choice." The pro reviewer then goes on to qualify that the new Legacy offers "all the room, features, comfort and safety" of segment mainstays like Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, but with edges on those rivals you won't find anywhere else, that it's "the go-to car" for commuters, road-trippers, and other travelers across diverse terrain and through wintry weather. Glowing accolades continue through the subjects of crash testing, resale value, and reliability scores, which KBB deemed "excellent." It's "hard to make an argument," they say in closing, "why anyone wouldn’t want this car."

We at Colonial Subaru can certainly see what they mean. After all, versus both 2018 Honda Accord and 2019 Toyota Camry, 2019 Subaru Legacy offers better capability down rough stretches of road and through foul Connecticut weather, more entertainment and connectivity tech standard earlier in the lineup, and it's even more affordable. From there, the differences are in the details. Against 2018 Accord, Legacy offers comparatively unique safety and driver-assistance features, and it's also the roomier option, with better overall front head and legroom. Versus 2019 Camry, on the other hand, 2019 Legacy heads out of the driveway with a larger fuel tank, making for fewer trips to the pump around Waterbury, not to mention more overall passenger and trunk space -- the makings of a day trip with friends, family, and cargo in tow.
