2017 Chevy Impala vs 2017 Ford Taurus
Full-size sedans may not be as popular as midsize or compact models, but they do tend to provide a higher level of spaciousness and sophistication. Therefore, you'll want to make sure you've picked the best full-size sedan once it comes to signing on the dotted line. To help you find out which one that is, we've compared two vehicles that are likely on your list: the 2017 Chevy Impala vs the 2017 Ford Taurus.
One of the key reasons why you're likely to opt for a full-size sedan over a smaller option is the interior room for both yourself and your passengers. The passenger space in the Taurus may be satisfactory, but the Impala is truly spacious with 105 cu. ft. It also has an edge over the Taurus when comparing both front and rear legroom, maxing out at an impressive 45.8 inches for those sitting in the front seats.

Differences Between the 2017 Impala vs 2017 Taurus
Although the starting MSRP for these vehicles is pretty close, there are some features that are standard on the Impala that aren't on the Taurus. These include a wide range of OnStar systems like OnStar Turn-By-Turn Navigation and OnStar Stolen Vehicle Assistance. On top of that, the Taurus comes standard with only a 6-way power adjustable driver's seat rather than an 8-way like the Impala. Of course, when talking about price, you also have to consider the money you'll spend on gas. The Impala has the Taurus beat there too, capable of up to 22 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.
