Subaru Model Differences, Explained: 2018 Subaru Legacy VS 2018 Subaru BRZ

With a Subaru, you don't have to choose between practicality and performance - unless you want to. That's where the 2018 Subaru BRZ comes in. While every other Subaru model comes with available EyeSight® driver assistance and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the performance-tuned BRZ is rear-wheel drive and provides no driver assistance. But is it right for you? Consider it against the 2018 Subaru Legacy, a much more practical sedan with all the Subaru hallmarks. We've compared them below, to help you decide which Subaru is the best fit. No matter which you select, Subaru reliability means it'll last for years to come!

2018 Subaru Legacy VS 2018 Subaru BRZ: Size and Design

The 2018 Subaru Legacy is a roomy midsize sedan with plenty of room for passengers and cargo. That makes it extremely practical. It begins with 15 cubic feet of trunk space in the Legacy compared to just seven in the 2018 Subaru BRZ. Inside the passenger cabin, your rear seat passengers will be able to stretch out and get comfortable with 8 additional inches of rear seat legroom in the 2018 Subaru Legacy compared to the 2018 Subaru BRZ. The small and sporty BRZ coupe is much shorter and lighter than the Legacy, with a tighter turning circle for enhanced maneuverability.

2018 Subaru Legacy VS 2018 Subaru BRZ: Performance

If you thought the 2018 Subaru BRZ would run away with this category, the 2018 Subaru Legacy 3.6R might surprise you! It gets the available 6-cylinder BOXER® engine upgrade that generates 256 horsepower for thrilling acceleration in the stately, practical Legacy package. However, the 2018 Subaru BRZ is truly tuned to tear it up at the track. Its engine only generates 205 horsepower - but the BRZ also weighs a full 1,000 pounds less than the 2018 Subaru Legacy 3.6R. That means it's even quicker from zero to 60 MPH. Best of all, it gets a TORSEN® limited-slip rear differential so no power is wasted to wheel-spin on the rear-wheel drive 2018 Subaru BRZ.

2018 Subaru Legacy VS 2018 Subaru BRZ: Safety

If you're looking for advanced driver assistance features, you'll want to opt for the 2018 Subaru Legacy. Only the Legacy is available with Subaru EyeSight® which adds camera-based active safety systems like Lane Keep Assist and Pre-Collision Braking. While you won't find those safety systems on the 2018 Subaru BRZ, it comes with everything driving enthusiasts need to stay in total control - chief among them, 4-wheel ventilated disc brakes which cool rapidly to eliminate brake fade during aggressive driving situations.

2018 Subaru Legacy VS 2018 Subaru BRZ: Value

The base 2018 Subaru Legacy costs about $3,000 less than the base 2018 Subaru BRZ.

With that in mind, it should be simple to decide which car gives you the best value for your money - depending on how you specifically plan to use it!
