2015 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid vs. 2015 Chevrolet Impala Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Impala than the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and the Chevrolet Impala in the front seats.

Convenience
The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid will require fewer stops at 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). Based on MSRP, the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is clearly a better financial choice over 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 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and the Chevrolet Impala have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is a little narrower than the Chevrolet Impala, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Impala.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chevrolet Impala.

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

Performance
The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid has less horsepower than the Chevrolet Impala, 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 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and the Chevrolet Impala. The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid has significantly less cargo room than the Chevrolet Impala, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid than that of the Chevrolet Impala.
