Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Impala offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Subaru Legacy with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Chevrolet Impala will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Subaru Legacy.

Convenience
With the Subaru Legacy you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Impala, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Subaru Legacy. 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 and the Subaru Legacy have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Impala is about the same width as the Subaru Legacy. 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 Subaru Legacy.

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 Subaru Legacy.

Handling
The Chevrolet Impala has a larger turning radius than the Subaru Legacy, 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 Subaru Legacy. 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 Subaru Legacy. The Chevrolet Impala has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Subaru Legacy.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Impala comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru Legacy.
