2017 Ford Fusion vs. 2017 Chevrolet Impala Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Ford Fusion than in the Chevrolet Impala, due to the Ford Fusion's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Impala will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Fusion.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Fusion as you will with the Chevrolet Impala, 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 Ford Fusion will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Chevrolet Impala. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Fusion and the Chevrolet Impala have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Fusion is about the same width as the Chevrolet Impala. If you go with the Ford Fusion, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Impala.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Ford Fusion and the Chevrolet Impala do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion is significantly less powerful than the Chevrolet Impala. 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 Ford Fusion and the Chevrolet Impala. The Ford Fusion has less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Impala, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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