While we hold the 2022 Subaru Legacy in high regard, its deliverance of performance is average for the class. Competing within the same class are the 2022 Nissan Altima, the 2022 Honda Accord, and the 2022 Volkswagen Jetta.

Although it falls behind by just 1.65 seconds in a 0-60 run, the 2022 Subaru Legacy fails to solidify its name as the best in the class as far as acceleration is concerned. The quarter-mile run times show us nothing different, with the 2022 Subaru Legacy falling 0.95 seconds behind the 2022 Toyota Camry.
