Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Impala than the Kia K5. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Impala and the Kia K5 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Impala as you will with the Kia K5, 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 Chevrolet Impala is somewhat more expensive than the Kia K5. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Impala carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Kia K5.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Impala is about the same width as the Kia K5. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Impala, which is slightly longer than the Kia K5.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Impala does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Kia K5.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Impala has a much more powerful engine than the Kia K5. 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 Chevrolet Impala and the Kia K5. The Chevrolet Impala has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Kia K5.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Impala is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia K5.
