2015 Ford Fusion vs. 2015 Chevrolet Impala Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Ford Fusion than in the Chevrolet Impala, due to the Ford Fusion's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Impala will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Fusion.

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). Based on MSRP, the Ford Fusion is clearly a better financial choice over the Chevrolet Impala. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Fusion and the Chevrolet Impala have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Fusion is about the same width as the Chevrolet Impala. If you go with the Ford Fusion, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Impala.

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

Handling
The Ford Fusion has a smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Impala, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion is somewhat more powerful than the Chevrolet Impala.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Fusion and the Chevrolet Impala. The Ford Fusion has less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Impala, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Ford Fusion comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Chevrolet Impala.
