2021 Subaru Impreza vs. 2021 Subaru Legacy: Capability

Because it's smaller, lighter and more affordable, the 2021 Subaru Impreza makes a robust 152 horsepower. It's also the most fuel-efficient Subaru model, getting even better gas mileage than the 2021 Subaru Legacy. A bigger standard engine in the 2021 Legacy provides 182 standard horsepower -- or, upgrade to the 2021 Legacy XT models equipped with a powerful, turbocharged engine delivering 260 horsepower!

But unlike just about every other vehicle in this segment, both the 2021 Subaru Impreza and 2021 Subaru Legacy feature standard all-wheel drive. This improves handling agility, all-weather confidence and comfort on slippery surfaces.

And while every 2021 Subaru Legacy is equipped with a CVT automatic transmission, which is also an available upgrade on the 2021 Subaru Impreza, the Impreza has a standard five-speed manual transmission for a classic, enthusiast-grade driving experience.
