2017 Subaru Legacy vs. 2017 Chevrolet Malibu

The 2017 Subaru Legacy gives drivers a range of benefits, from unique performance specs, to a wide spectrum of technologies, to a raft of safety devices that are designed to keep you and your passengers safe on the road. For example, not only will you get a choice of two engines in the Legacy, but the car will also provide you with Harman Kardon audio and Anti-Lock Braking. But if you're not convinced by our word, then just compare the new Legacy to one of its competitors, the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu, to see how it distinguishes itself.

Engine Performance

First of all, the Legacy provides a spectrum of engine and performance specs.

  • The 2017 Subaru Legacy - The Legacy gives you a choice of two engines: a 2.5L SUBARU BOXER 4-Cylinder engine that generates 175 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque, or a 3.6L SUBARU BOXER 6-Cylinder engine that produces 256 hp and 247 lb-ft of torque.

  • The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu - On the other hand, the base-line Malibu only gives you a 1.5 4-cylinder DOHC engine with turbocharger and DI and Variable Valve Timing that gets 160 hp as well as 184 lb-ft of torque.

Technology

Second, the Legacy also provides you with a range of entertainment, information, and connectivity technologies.

  • The 2017 Subaru Legacy - For example, the Legacy provides you with a STARLINK 7-inch Multimedia Plus system to connectivity to friends and family, as well as a Harman Kardon audio, which gives you a 576-watt-equivalent amplifier and 12 speakers, too.

  • The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu - The Malibu offers up Chevrolet MyLink Radio technology and SiriusXM Satellite Radio, yet its Bose Premium Audio system only has 9 speakers.

Safety Devices

Last, the Legacy also gives you an array of safety devices, too.

  • The 2017 Subaru Legacy - The Legacy will provide you with a 4-Wheel Anti-Lock Brake System and Brake Assist, Vehicle Dynamics Control, Traction Control, and Tire Pressure Monitoring, as well as a number of other safety systems.

  • The 2017 Chevrolet Malibu - The Malibu has a StabiliTrak device as well as a Rear Vision Camera, Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert, and Front Automatic Braking, but it does not give you the exact same 4-Wheel Anti-Lock Brake System.
