Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Impala than the Hyundai Sonata. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Impala and the Hyundai Sonata in the front seats.

Convenience
The Hyundai Sonata requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chevrolet Impala, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Impala is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Sonata. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Impala carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Hyundai Sonata.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Impala is about the same width as the Hyundai Sonata. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Impala, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Sonata.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Impala does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Hyundai Sonata.

Handling
The Chevrolet Impala has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Sonata, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Impala has a much more powerful engine than the Hyundai Sonata. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Impala and the Hyundai Sonata. The Chevrolet Impala has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Hyundai Sonata.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Impala is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Sonata.
