2015 Legacy: Major Reasons to Consider
- The Legacy has standard all-wheel drive, which is a plus for outdoor enthusiasts.
- An 18.5-gallon fuel tank means you may be able to go longer between fill-ups in the Legacy. The Accord’s fuel tank is 17.2 gallons.
- The track between the Legacy’s wheels is slightly longer than the track between the Accord’s wheels: 62.8 inches vs. 62.7 inches. This may improve the way the Legacy handles.
