Luxury Sedans Fight: Acura vs Subaru

July 17, 2012 at 09:48

Today we have the fight with not that expansive, but upper-class sedans, the 2013 Acura ILX on one side clashing in the fight with the 2013 Subaru Legacy. We must say that these two models are greatly flexible as they come in a variety of trims, starting with the base one (well, as a standard, and ending with the hybrid or premium ones.

So let’s start the fight with the price overview. As these cars are considered to be of the upper-scale they will cost you not less than $28,000. For Subaru Legacy you may pay even the whole $30,000. Though, if we look on the engine side we will see where the whole secret is hidden. The Acura comes with the 2.0L 150hp I4, while Subaru has at its disposal 2.5L 265hp H4. The difference is fairly big, if we are talking about such a big scale here. Though the fuel economy ratio is fairly the opposite, powerful Subaru gets only as far as 18 mpg in city and 25 on the highway. Acura will get you around 10 miles per gallon more in each, so about 25 in the city and 35 on the highway.

We can see that the fight was pretty tough here, though Acura wins, as we have to think more environmentally friendly now, rather than powerful.
