2017 Chevrolet Impala vs. 2016 Nissan Altima 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 Nissan Altima. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Impala and the Nissan Altima in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Impala as you will with the Nissan Altima, 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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Nissan Altima, 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Nissan Altima.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Impala is a little wider than the Nissan Altima, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Impala, which is slightly longer than the Nissan Altima.

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Impala has a larger turning radius than the Nissan Altima, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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

Warranty
The Chevrolet Impala comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Altima.
