Serving Serving Panama City, Lynn Haven, and Quincy

If you are searching for a stunning new Subaru to take home soon, your attention may be focused on the 2019 Legacy and the 2019 WRX. The Legacy is a midsize car with a sedan’s body style, and the WRX is a compact car with a sporty look. Both options provide you with true value wrapped into a stylish body design. To make a thoughtful buying decision, it is necessary to compare these two models closely and to stop by the dealership for a test drive of both options.


The Legacy’s last major update occurred in the 2014 model year when the latest generation was introduced, but this midsize car nonetheless has an attractive design. Its dimensions are slightly larger in all directions than the WRX’s dimensions. It has a classic profile with a well-designed hood, the automaker’s modern grille design and a gorgeous character line that runs down the side panels while angling slightly upward. The WRX received its last major update in 2016, and its stunning appeal may be ideal for those who are looking for a car with an aggressive design. The hood angles more sharply downward in the front to a smaller grille. It also has a large air intake feature built into it to give the vehicle a rally sport look. The side profile reveals two rounded contour lines, a shark fin roof antenna, a rear spoiler and a forward-slanting design.


From mechanical and safety features to comfort and tech features, you will find that both of these 2019 Subaru models are well-equipped. The 2019 Legacy gives you symmetrical all-wheel drive, EyeSight driver assistance technology, LED steering responsive headlights, soft touch materials, a superior audio system, a color touchscreen, memory seating, heated seats for both rows, a push-button ignition and more. The WRX for 2019 includes dynamic control with active torque vectoring, a track-tuned suspension, high-performance braking, an optional sports design package for the interior, LED responsive headlights, a color touchscreen display and other features.


Now that you know more about what to expect from the Legacy and the WRX, you may be wondering which vehicle offers superior value. The base price for the new Legacy is approximately $5,000 lower than the WRX’s base price. Both vehicles are well-equipped and have an appealing style. The Legacy is more well-suited for car shoppers who are looking for a roomy, comfortable and sophisticated vehicle. The WRX, on the other hand, is a great option for drivers who are focused on finding a vehicle that has an athletic look and that delivers a sporty performance.
