2014 Toyota Avalon vs. 2014 Chevrolet Impala Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Toyota Avalon 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 Toyota Avalon.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Avalon 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 Toyota Avalon 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 Toyota Avalon and the Chevrolet Impala have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Toyota Avalon 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 Toyota Avalon is slightly shorter than the Chevrolet Impala, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Toyota Avalon does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Chevrolet Impala.

Handling
The Toyota Avalon 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 Toyota Avalon 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 Toyota Avalon and the Chevrolet Impala. The Toyota Avalon has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Chevrolet Impala.

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