2017 BMW 320 vs. 2017 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 BMW 320, 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 BMW 320.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 320 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 BMW 320 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 Destination Charge for the BMW 320 is much higher than that for the Chevrolet Impala.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 320 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Impala, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW 320, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Impala.

Drivetrain
The BMW 320 has much less torque than the Chevrolet Impala, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 320 has a smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Impala, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 320 is significantly less powerful than the Chevrolet Impala. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 320 and the Chevrolet Impala. The BMW 320 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 BMW 320 than that of the Chevrolet Impala.
