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 CLA 250. The Chevrolet Impala will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250.

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 CLA 250, 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 CLA 250. 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 CLA 250.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Impala is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 CLA 250.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Impala and the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Chevrolet Impala has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Impala has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250. 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 CLA 250. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet Impala will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Impala is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250.
