Eric's Autos: 2020 Subaru Legacy
How much can buying a trunk save you?
That's the price difference between the new Subaru Legacy and the new Subaru Outback, which is basically a Legacy without the trunk.
Both are mechanically identical and almost physically identical -- except for the Outback being a wagon and the Legacy being the sedan on which it's based.
The only things you get less of for your money if you buy the Legacy are cargo room and ground clearance.
Which may matter less to you than the $4k you didn't spend to get them.
What It Is
The Legacy is the sedan version of the Outback wagon -- or vice versa, depending on how you view it.
It's also the only large sedan with a price that starts under $23k that comes standard with all-wheel drive. Most of the sedans in the same-size range, like the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord, don't even offer it -- and they cost more without it.
The Legacy's base price is $22,745 with all-wheel drive, versus $23,870 for an Accord sedan without it. A Camry without all-wheel drive is even pricier: $24,425 to start.
