For a longtime Subaru Legacy was one of the best AWD sedans with its boxer engines and high-riding Outback options. But at the same time other mid-size sedan Chrysler 200S was completely reborn.

This year Subaru introduced new model as well. It didn’t get so revolutionary design, but it received the 3.6-liter “Boxer” six-cylinder engine providing 256 HP and 247 lb-ft. of torque. Nine-speed is quiet and efficient, but it needs more development work. Legacy provides better driving, it has better maneuverability.

Subaru has a good overall inside design including infotainment system. But Legacy’s interior design is more modern and stylish. It has a blue-tinted wood-trim. When it comes to exterior style, here Chrysler 200S is leading too. It has High-tech LED lights, glossy black trim, bumper-integrated exhaust tips. So in general, Chrysler 200S is ahead of its old model, it offers so much power, style and equipment, but still it is not refined enough for being able to compete against Acura TLX for example. Legacy has better fuel efficiency, wider front and rear leg rooms, and cheaper price. So, choose what you like more, but we prefer to give a chance to Chrysler 200S.
