2019 Nissan Altima AWD vs. 2019 Subaru Legacy AWD | La Crosse, WI

Nissan Altima vs. Subaru Legacy
When you’re searching for a new sedan to buy, you’ll find that the market is full of options, including the 2019 Nissan Altima AWD and the Subaru Legacy AWD. These two models are direct competitors, but the Nissan Altima definitely has the upper hand over the Legacy.

All-wheel drive

Both the Altima and Legacy are equipped with all-wheel drive, but the two systems are not identical. The Legacy comes with a typical symmetrical all-wheel drive system, which is not very intuitive and pretty basic in capability. It does its job on slippery roads, but it can be overkill on daily drives.

However, the 2019 Altima AWD has an Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system that improves operation and fuel economy. The smart drivetrain will adapt to the road to give you the best-possible grip, sending more power to the wheels that need it most. The system will automatically switch to front-wheel drive to cruise in good weather to reduce overall fuel consumption.


The appearance of a car contributes to its appeal and the confidence you’ll exude behind the wheel. The Subaru Legacy has a generic sedan exterior with few character lines, a simplistic grille, and an unenthusiastic shape. It’s not a car that will impress onlookers.

The 2019 Nissan Altima AWD channels the energy you’ll find in a sports sedan. Its deep, aggressive character lines will capture the attention of passersby, and its textured grille stands out in traffic. Nissan completely redesigned the Altima’s exterior for the 2019 model year, making it an exceptionally modern sedan.


At the end of the day, the 2019 Nissan Altima AWD dominates over the Subaru Legacy AWD. Its Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system supersedes expectations, while its newly redesigned exterior makes an unforgettable first impression.
