2016 Chevrolet Impala vs 2016 Chrysler 300
The perfect four-door sedan has to be as much of a workhorse as it is stylish and feature-packed. In your search for a new sedan, you’ve likely run across the 2016 Chevy Impala and the 2016 Chrysler 300. These two popular sedans both offer efficiency, modern luxury, and sufficient capacity, but which pulls ahead on the factors that matter most? For your ultimate convenience, we’ve put these two vehicles in a head-to-head comparison. See for yourself how these vehicles stack up in terms of safety, warranty, efficiency, power, and capacity.
Safety and Warranty
Whether you’re transporting your loved ones or just yourself and cargo, state-of-the-art safety is absolutely essential. The Impala performed better on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s side impact test than the 300, with 4 stars compared to the 300’s 3-star rating. The Impala exhibited less chest movement, abdominal force, hip force, and spine acceleration. The maximum damage depth was also an inch less in the pole crash test.
Both the Impala and the 300 offer full airbag systems, antilock brakes with available crash mitigation, traction and electronic stability control, height-adjustable front seatbelts, rearview cameras, and blind spot, lane departure, and rear cross-path warning systems. However, the Impala offers added safety features that the 300 doesn’t, like height-adjustable rear seatbelts and power child safety locks.
The Impala also features a more extensive warranty than the 300, with a year longer of corrosion coverage and 2 years or 24,000 miles of scheduled maintenance.
Performance and Efficiency
What good is efficiency if you don’t have enough power? Thankfully the Impala has both in abundance. The Impala’s V6 engine is faster than the 300’s V6, getting to 60 MPH from zero .2 seconds faster. The Impala also has several fuel-saving, environmentally friendly features that the 300 doesn’t offer, like an auto start-stop engine feature for heavy traffic or stoplights and regular unleaded gas optimization. The EPA also certified the Impala a “Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle,” which is a higher level than the 300’s “Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle” recognition.
Cargo and Cabin Capacity
Day-to-day functionality in your vehicle is often dictated by the comfort and flexibility that the cabin provides. The Impala has a full 1.3 inches more headroom and 4 inches more legroom compared to the 300. You can also haul more cargo with the Impala’s trunk, which is 18.8 cubic feet, compared to the 300’s 16.3 cubic feet.
