Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Impala than the Acura ILX, 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 Acura ILX.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Impala requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Acura ILX, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura ILX 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 Destination Charge for the Acura ILX is much higher than that for the Chevrolet Impala.

Dimensions
Since the Acura ILX is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Impala, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Acura ILX, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Impala.

Drivetrain
The Acura ILX has much less torque than the Chevrolet Impala, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Acura ILX 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 Acura ILX 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 Acura ILX and the Chevrolet Impala. The Acura ILX 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 Acura ILX than that of the Chevrolet Impala.
