We've taken the time to break down the important factors, such as comfort, performance and fuel economy, to bring much needed clarity to your vehicle search.


Legacy v. Optima




When you purchase a sedan, you want something that flashes and fits the part. That's what you are getting with the Legacy, as the equal proportions of this vehicle help it fully dominate the Optima in this category.


Year Round Reliability


When you gear up to go on that cross country trip, remember that the Legacy comes standard in all-wheel drive, making it more than equipped to handle anything thrown its way. This adaptability and reliability feature doesn't come in the Optima.


Fuel Economy


It's all about saving some money and spending just as much time in your brand new sedan. The Legacy beats out the Optima here, getting 26 miles per gallon in the city and 36 miles per gallon on the highway.




The Legacy thrives in its safety features, from the all-wheel drive providing you reliable support to the available EyeSight Driver Assist Technology. This innovative feature has your back at all times, as it can monitor traffic, bring on your cruise control when needed, alert you when you're swerving and more.

As you can see, the well-rounded nature of the Subaru Legacy gives it the edge over its challenger, the Kia Optima. This vehicle comfortably caters to your daily activities and is an exceptional option we encourage you to explore here at Ocala Subaru.
