Let’s take a closer look in this vehicle comparison from Braman Honda of Palm Beach.
Capability and Handling Comparison
With two available engine options, the 2016 Accord has loads to offer today’s buyer. For those most interested in fuel efficiency, the vehicle’s inline four-cylinder 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC engine is an excellent option. This engine produces 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque and gets exceptional fuel economy paired with either the standard six-speed manual transmission or the optional continuously variable transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode and paddle shifters.
Those looking for higher performance will want to choose the 24-valve SOHC i-VTEC V6 engine that produces 278 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque. No matter which you choose, you can expect incredible performance and handling with class-leading fuel economy.
The 2016 Subaru Legacy also offers two engine options. The more fuel-efficient engine option is a 175-horsepower 2.5-liter DOHC aluminum-alloy 16-valve horizontally opposed four-cylinder SUBARU BOXER engine with a Dual Active Valve Control System, which is paired with the Lineartronic CVT with six-speed manual mode and paddle shifters. The vehicle’s more powerful engine option is a 3.6-liter DOHC engine, but it only produces 256 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque.
Safety Feature Comparison
As some of the safest vehicles on the market, Honda vehicles offer a lengthy list of standard safety features as a matter of practice. The 2016 Accord is no different. The vehicle comes standard with an anti-lock braking system, Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control, Electronic Brake Distribution, a multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, Brake Assist, daytime running lights, and the tire pressure monitoring system.
