2015 Lexus ES 350 vs. 2015 Chevrolet Impala Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus ES 350 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Chevrolet Impala 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 Lexus ES 350.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus ES 350 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). The Lexus ES 350 is somewhat more expensive 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 Destination Charge for the Lexus ES 350 is much higher than that for the Chevrolet Impala.

Dimensions
The Lexus ES 350 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. The Lexus ES 350 is slightly shorter than the Chevrolet Impala, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Lexus ES 350 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Chevrolet Impala.

Handling
The Lexus ES 350 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 Lexus ES 350 has a much more powerful engine than the Chevrolet Impala. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus ES 350 and the Chevrolet Impala. The Lexus ES 350 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 Lexus ES 350 than that of the Chevrolet Impala.
