2015 Chevrolet Impala vs. 2014 Toyota Avalon Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Impala offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota Avalon with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Chevrolet Impala will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Avalon.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Impala as you will with the Toyota Avalon, 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 Chevrolet Impala will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Avalon. 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 Toyota Avalon have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Impala is a little wider than the Toyota Avalon, 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 Toyota Avalon.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Impala is significantly less powerful than the Toyota Avalon. 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 Chevrolet Impala and the Toyota Avalon. The Chevrolet Impala has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Toyota Avalon.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Impala comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Avalon.
