The car buying process can at times be confusing and frustrating to car buyers. There's just so many vehicles to choose from! Every brand claims to have the best models with the best power, most features, etc. Many car buyers don't know who or what to believe. That's why we at Hesser Toyota create these model comparison research pages so that you can see how car models stack up against each other.
We hope these give car buyers more peace of mind when they're in the car buying process. For this one, we're going to be comparing two of the most popular 4-door sedans available today, the 2018 Toyota Avalon and the 2018 Chevrolet Impala. For this exercise, we'll be comparing the two models' base trims, the 2018 Toyota Avalon XLE 4-door Sedan and the 2018 Chevrolet Impala LS 4-door sedan, so that it's as fair as possible. We'll be looking at each cars' engine, performance capabilities, and fuel economy.
|2018 Toyota Avalon||VS||2018 Chevrolet Impala|
|3.5-liter V6||Engine||2.5-liter I-4|
|268 horsepower||Horsepower||197 horsepower|
|248 lb.-ft.||Torque||191 lb.-ft.|
|24 MPG||Fuel Economy (Combined MPG)||25 MPG|
Clearly, both models offer much to car buyers and are worthy of being deemed as some of the best cars available. With that being said, when you compare the important data and specifications of the two, it seems clear that the 2018 Toyota Avalon holds the advantage over its Chevy counterpart. It all starts with the engine: the Avalon's bigger V6 engine isn't just for show; it gives the model more power and performance for a better drive when compared to the Impala.
The 2018 Toyota Avalon bests the Chevy Impala in both horsepower and torque capabilities, and holds its own when it comes to fuel economy. The 2018 Chevy Impala holds a razor-thin edge when it comes to fuel economy, but when you put that into context with how much better the engine and capabilities are on the 2018 Toyota Avalon, it's almost impressive that the Avalon gets nearly just as good fuel economy despite having so much more power.
Thanks to Toyota Safety Sense™ and Star Safety System™, The 2018 Toyota Avalon also comes with a larger suite of advanced safety technology. Features include:
