Powerful Performance: The 2016 Chevy Impala vs. 2016 Dodge Charger
If you’re looking for a sedan that puts performance first as your next vehicle, then you’re in luck. There are plenty of options in the market that will meet your basic needs. However, finding the right mix of features and capabilities for your specific wish list can prove a little more difficult. Luckily, we’ve compared and analyzed the most important aspects of two of the most popular performance-driven sedans out there. Take a look at how the 2016 Chevy Impala and the 2016 Dodge Charger compare in terms of safety, warranty, capacity, and efficiency.
Safety and Warranty
When you love the thrill of a fast, agile vehicle, safety is a top concern. The Impala and the Charger both boast a list of important safety features, like full airbag systems, height-adjustable front seatbelts with pretensions, electronic stability and traction control, plastic fuel tanks, daytime running lights, optional lane departure and blind spot warning systems, available crash mitigating brakes, and available rearview cameras with rear cross-path warning. The Impala offers key additions to these safety systems that the Charger does not offer, including rear height-adjustable seatbelts and power child safety locks.
The Impala also offers an enhanced warranty package, including 2 years or 24,000 miles of scheduled maintenance coverage—a feature that the Charger does not include. The Charger’s corrosion warranty is also 1 year shorter than the Impala’s. Maintenance and warranty claims will also be much more convenient for many drivers with the Impala, because there are more than 43 percent more Chevy dealers than Dodge.
Cabin and Cargo Capacity
No matter what you use your car for, from long road trips and hauling cargo to everyday drives, more space matters. The Impala boasts more space where you need it most for passenger comfort and cargo capacity. The Impala offers 1.3 inches more front headroom, .8 inches more rear headroom, and 4 inches more front legroom than the Charger. The Impala’s trunk also has significantly more capacity than the Charger—18.8 cubic feet compared to the Charger’s 16.1 cubic feet.
Efficiency and Fuel Economy
A highly efficient vehicle has serious appeal for nearly any driver. Whether you would like to save more money at the pump, be more kind to the environment, or just have the convenience of more miles and time between fill-ups. The Impala offers incredible added features and distinctions that give it the edge over the Charger. The Impala 4-cylinder offers an automatic start/stop engine feature that helps save fuel and reduce pollution in heavy traffic situations—a feature not offered on the Charger. The EPA certified the Impala as a Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle, while the Charger garnered the less favorable Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle designation.
