2016 Chevy Impala vs 2016 Toyota Avalon
Full-size sedans may have taken a second-place position behind crossovers for many family vehicle shoppers, but the modern offerings in this class continue to be some of the most spacious and comfortable available for drivers and passengers alike. If you're considering a crossover, you might be surprised how much more affordable and luxurious a full-size car, like the 2016 Chevy Impala or the 2016 Toyota Avalon, can be.
The full-size sedan class is all about options: you can equip your large car to reflect your ideal price point and still get your must-have available technology and safety features. If you're tempted by the convenient cargo capacity of mid-size crossovers, consider the 2016 Impala's best-in-class trunk capacity of 18.8 cubic feet – that's significantly more than the Toyota Avalon offers and certainly rivals some smaller crossovers. Check out the more affordable, spacious and customizable Chevy Impala at Parks Chevrolet today – just nine miles east of high prices and Wichita, KS.
|2016 Chevy Impala||vs||2016 Toyota Avalon|
|2.5L 4-cylinder||Engine||3.5L V-6|
|18.5 gal.||Fuel Capacity||17.0 gal.|
|18.8 cu. ft.||Trunk Space||16.0 cu. ft.|
While the 2016 Toyota Avalon does come with standard V-6 power, even its entry-level model costs more than a V-6-equipped Impala. Additionally, the Avalon's V-6 offers significantly less power than the Impala's V-6 upgrade (268 vs 305 horsepower). You will find the Avalon XLE comes nicely equipped, with 17-inch alloy wheels, heated mirrors, dual-zone automatic temperature control, cruise control, leather seats, heated power front seats, keyless ignition, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, a seven-inch touchscreen, eight speakers and auxiliary audio and USB input ports, all standard. However, the Impala LT offers many of these advantages, plus a bigger touchscreen and more modern technology, at a lower MSRP.
Why pay more for outdated tech and less power? The 2016 Chevy Impala starts off its lineup with a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. Standard on the entry-level trim are: 18-inch wheels, automatic headlamps, cruise control, A/C, a power driver seat, OnStar vehicle telematics with a 4G connection and Wi-Fi hotspot capability, Bluetooth phone connectivity, six speakers and USB and auxiliary audio input ports. The second-tier LT trim equips a more powerful V-6 engine, an eight-inch touchscreen, two additional USB ports, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Affordable, stylish and comfortable, the 2016 Chevy Impala represents one of the best values in the industry.
