2016 Chevrolet Impala vs. 2016 Kia Optima Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
The Kia Optima requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chevrolet Impala, making it more convenient to drive.

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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Kia Optima, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Kia Optima have similar Destination Charges.

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Impala and the Kia Optima.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Impala is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Optima.
