2014 Volkswagen Jetta 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 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Impala will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid 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). Based on MSRP, the Volkswagen Jetta 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 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid and the Chevrolet Impala have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

Performance

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid and the Chevrolet Impala. The Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid has significantly less cargo room than the Chevrolet Impala, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
