Fuel Economy

Both the fuel economies of the 2017 Chevy Impala and the Toyota Avalon will save you money on gas, but which will save you more? It may look like the Impala and the Avalon are equal matches, but look again. The Chevy has a slight advantage over the Toyota in its fuel tank capacity.

While it may not seem like a 1.5 gallon advantage is a big deal, consider this: with the Chevy Impala you will fill up your gas tank 4 times fewer than you would driving the Toyota Avalon. The 4 more times you would spend at the pump with the Avalon is time that Chevy believes should be spent driving and enjoying your vehicle on the open road.


Vehicle Safety Rating

What difference does one star make? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s 5-star rating system is designed to inform drivers of vehicle safety in three primary categories: a Front Crash Test, a Side Crash Test, and a Rollover probability rating. Because the Overall Vehicle Safety Score combines the three scores in these categories, one star can make a huge difference.

…And there is a huge difference in safety between the 2017 Chevy Impala and the Toyota Avalon. While both cars were awarded 5-Stars in their Side Crash Tests, the Chevy Impala was also awarded 5-Stars in its Front Crash Test which surpasses the Avalon’s Front Crash rating by one star.

Because the NHTSA only awards 5-Stars to cars they believe have proven their exceptional safety features, one star can make a huge difference. Though the Toyota Avalon still has stellar vehicle safety ratings, the 2017 Chevy Impala’s safety rating comes with that one extra star to give you peace-of-mind.


Warranty Coverage

As is typical for all Chevy and Toyota vehicles, both the Impala and the Avalon feature 3-year/36,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited warranties. And even the PowerTrain Limited warranties for both are good, but Chevy’s warranty is exceptional. While Toyota’s PowerTrain Limited warranty last for 5 years or 60,000 miles, the Chevy’s warranty outlasts it for 40,000 miles! That’s right, Chevy’s warranty lasts for 5 years or 100,000 miles.

In addition, the Chevy Impala features a Roadside Assistance program. This program features the following services:

<> > Lockout Service – You will be assisted when you accidentally lock your keys inside the vehicle.

<> > Flat Tire Change – A spare will be installed for you.

<> > Fuel Delivery – If you run out of gas, $5 worth of fuel will be delivered to get you back on the road.

<> > Emergency Towing – Your car will be towed to its nearest dealer.

<> > Jump-Starts – If you need your car jump-started, you will be assisted whether at home or on the road.

The Toyota Avalon also features the Roadside Assistance warranty, but once again the Chevy’s warranty outlasts it… this time by 75,000 miles. Because both the Chevy’s PowerTrain Limited and Roadside Assistance warranties take you further, the Impala is the clear choice for reliability.



While the Chevy Impala’s gas tank is only slightly larger giving it an advantage over the Toyota Avalon, the real advantages are in the Impala’s better Crash Safety rating and its exceptional warranty coverage. This makes the Chevy Impala a clear choice for smart car buyers.
