Though the 2020 Subaru Legacy is undoubtedly a worthy option in the mid-size sedan industry, offering better high-end horsepower, torque and range than the Altima, it falls short in the tech department, which is what most of today’s consumers are most concerned about. The 2020 Altima, however, shines – it features class-leading technologies such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as an available All-Wheel Drive system that can help you keep control in any road condition. Not only that, but when it comes to safety, nothing can top the Altima’s Safety Shield 360 driver assistance suite, which offers the following:

  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning (Class-Exclusive)
  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Rear View Monitor
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • High Beam Assist
  • Many more!
