Camry goes aggressive. Legacy goes Camry


Better than the old one. Is that a Ford Fusion grille on the front? If Subaru would offer a FWD-only version, they could price it even lower, get better fuel economy, and pick up more buyers. Not everyone wants AWD!


Camry had better up the mpg on the 2015 refresh. Current cars mpg is 25/35 mpg city/highway. The new Subaru beats Camry's with 26/36 mpg city/highway with the AWD.
As for the looks of the Subbie. It looks like ford Taurus up front and Acura ILX in the back. Toyota Camry from the side rear shot. Definitely not a stand out but at the same time not offensive.
