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 Mercedes-Benz A-Class. The Chevrolet Impala will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Impala as you will with the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Impala will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Impala is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Impala, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Impala transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Impala has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Impala is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.
