2014 Acura TSX vs. 2015 Chevrolet Impala Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Impala than the Acura TSX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Impala will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura TSX.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura TSX as you will with the Chevrolet Impala, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura TSX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Chevrolet Impala. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura TSX will cost more in transportation costs than the Chevrolet Impala.

Dimensions
The Acura TSX is about the same width as the Chevrolet Impala. If you go with the Acura TSX, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Impala.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Acura TSX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chevrolet Impala.

Handling
The Acura TSX has a smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Impala, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Acura TSX and the Chevrolet Impala.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TSX and the Chevrolet Impala. The Acura TSX has significantly less cargo room than the Chevrolet Impala, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura TSX than that of the Chevrolet Impala.
