We compared the 2015 Chevy Impala LS to the Chrysler 300 Limited in several categories to determine which sedan is superior. Which vehicle was crowned the winner? Read on to find out!
When it comes to safety, the 2015 Chevy Impala and 2015 Chrysler 300 have the basics covered. Both feature airbag systems, antilock brakes, traction control, and electronic stability systems. But Chevy went above and beyond with the Impala to ensure a safe and secure ride. The Impala is more family friendly, with power child safety locks and height-adjustable safety belts with child comfort guides. The Chrysler only has manual child locks and no child comfort guides. When subjected to the IIHS front crash prevention test, the Chevy Impala received a score of “Superior,” while the Chrysler 300 only scored “Basic.” The 2015 Chevy Impala is an exceptionally safe choice compared to the Chrysler 300.
The 2015 Chevy Impala features a standard ECOTEC 2.5L DI engine with a 33 mpg highway fuel economy for an efficient ride. The Chrysler 300’s base engine is a 3.6L V6 engine with a less efficient 31 mpg highway fuel economy. The Impala also features an engine start/stop system for greater efficiency, while the 300 lacks such a feature. Comparing the Impala’s available 3.6L V6 engine to the Chrysler 300’s V6, the Chrysler falls short when it comes to horsepower. The Impala V6 produces 300 hp compared to the 292 hp generated by its competitor from Chrysler.
The Impala was the clear winner when it comes to warranty. Chevrolet has a very generous warranty plan that includes complimentary scheduled maintenance for 2 years or 24,000 miles. There is no scheduled maintenance warranty with the Chrysler 300. The Impala also has a six-year corrosion warranty, while the Chrysler 300 is only covered for five years. Finally, Chevy dealers are over 50 percent more numerous than Chrysler, making it easier to service your vehicle when necessary. Chevy’s warranty adds hundreds of dollars of value to the 2015 Impala.
Both the 2015 Chrysler 300 and 2015 Chevy Impala are full-sized sedans, offering large and spacious cabins that seat five passengers with ease. The Impala features 1.3 inches of additional head room and 4 inches of additional legroom in the front. This allows the driver and front-seat passenger more room to relax than the smaller Chrysler 300. For a spacious and comfortable ride, the 2015 Chevy Impala is hard to beat.
