Subaru Goes Head-to-Head with the Competition

There are so many options to choose from not only within the Subaru brand but across the various brands that it can be hard for Jeffersontown drivers to know where to start. Luckily, at Bachman Subaru, we know the importance of knowing your options before settling on the one that is best for you, and that's why we compare our top Subaru models to the competition for you.

Browse these brief comparisons so that you have a clearer idea of which vehicle suits your daily driving in the La Grange area best.


Legacy vs. Toyota Camry and Honda Accord

When it comes to performance, the Legacy offers more versatility and rugged driving. The Legacy comes with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. If you want additional stability, control, and safety for the Accord and Camry, you will have to pay extra. This means that you will be prepared for all types of driving conditions in the Crestwood area with the Legacy.

If you're interested in staying connected and entertained when driving in the Shelbyville then having a robust multimedia system makes a huge difference, and all three vehicles have some impressive features and the ability to integrate your smartphone.

The Camry allows for Apple CarPlay® smartphone integration on the base model while the Accord offers both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ starting at the Sport trim level. The Legacy comes with standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration as well as additional features like Bluetooth® connectivity, a four-month SiriusXM® Satellite Radio trial subscription, and simple voice commands.

Forester vs. Honda CR-V and Toyota Rav4

Comfort and passenger space is important for family-oriented vehicles. Whether you plan to take the family for a road trip in the Louisville area or you want to load up the back with equipment and luggage, a spacious cabin is essential. When you start to look at aspects like the passenger and maximum cargo volume between the three models, it becomes clear the Forester is best.

The RAV4 offers 98.9 cubic feet of passenger volume and a maximum cargo capacity of 69.8 cubic feet. The CR-V improves on that by coming with 105.9 cubic feet of passenger volume and a maximum cargo capacity of 105.9 cubic feet. The Forester is solidly in the lead by offering 111.9 cubic feet of passenger volume and a 76.1-cubic-foot max cargo space.

If stability and traction are important for your driving in the Jeffersontown area, then Forester is your best bet. Not only does it come with standard all-wheel drive, but it also comes with additional standard features that are either not offered or unavailable until higher trim levels for the RAV4 and CR-V. Some of these standard stability and traction features include:

  • Trailer Stability Assist
  • Active Torque Vectoring
  • Vehicle Dynamics Control

Outback vs. Toyota Rav4 and Ford Escape

Safety is key for any family vehicle. Having confidence, awareness, and safety are important for La Grange drivers, and there are plenty of highly sophisticated features now being offered by various brands. However, how does the safety of the Outback, RAV4, and Escape compare to one another?

When tested and reviewed by the IIHS, the Subaru Outback is the only SUV of the three that earned the title of Top Safety Pick+, which is the highest possible rating that is available. Both the Outback and the RAV4 come with impressive standard safety technology while the Escape's safety technology is offered in a package.

When it comes down to it, the Subaru Outback is the safest option of the three models.


Ascent vs. Ford Explorer and Toyota Highlander

The Ascent has more passenger volume and maximum cargo capacity than the Explorer and Highlander. It has a higher safety rating from the IIHS. It's the only three-row SUV to come with standard all-wheel drive, and it has the most stability and traction features, making it a standout model in its class.
