2014 Chevrolet Impala vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Impala than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. The Chevrolet Impala will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Impala you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 Chevrolet Impala will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Impala is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Impala, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Drivetrain
The Chevrolet Impala has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Chevrolet Impala has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chevrolet Impala has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Impala and the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. The Chevrolet Impala has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Impala is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.
