2021 Subaru Legacy vs. 2021 Toyota Camry: Performance

The new Toyota Camry is one of just a handful of sedans available on the market with all-wheel drive. Almost none of them provide all-wheel drive as standard equipment -- except the Subaru Legacy. With standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive on every 2021 Subaru Legacy, you won't have to pay more for this feature that really comes in handy during midwest winters. On the 2021 Toyota Camry, AWD is an optional extra that'll cost an additional $1,400.

Furthermore, the 2021 Subaru Legacy is built to provide a more engaging driving experience with balanced, responsive handling. The Legacy features standard Active Torque Vectoring technology, which aids with steering turn-in by engaging the inside front brake in an understeer situation. A similar feature is available on the 2021 Toyota Camry, but only on the costly, souped-up TRD trim level. This, combined with the sophisticated all-wheel drive system and low, wide BOXER® engine configuration, the 2021 Subaru Legacy feels more connected to the road than its rival from Toyota.

Both the 2021 Subaru Legacy and 2021 Toyota Camry provide award-winning protection for you and your family.

One key safety feature you won't find on the 2021 Toyota Camry? The Subaru DriverFocus distraction mitigation system. By monitoring the driver's attention, the 2021 Subaru Legacy can detect drowsy or distracted driving patterns and alert the driver to refocus their attention on the road. Such a feature isn't available at all on the Toyota Camry.
