2017 Chevrolet Impala vs. 2016 Ford Taurus Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Impala offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Ford Taurus. The Chevrolet Impala will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Taurus.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Impala as you will with the Ford Taurus, 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). The Chevrolet Impala is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Taurus. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Impala and the Ford Taurus have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Impala is much slimmer than the Ford Taurus, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Impala takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Ford Taurus.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Impala transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Ford Taurus.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Impala is somewhat more powerful than the Ford Taurus.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Impala and the Ford Taurus. The Chevrolet Impala has less cargo capacity than the Ford Taurus, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Impala comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Taurus.
