2016 Chevrolet Impala vs. 2016 Toyota Avalon

For shoppers in the market for a full-size sedan, there are a lot of different options to choose from. The 2016 Chevrolet Impala stands out from the competition, though, thanks to its commanding performance, spacious dimensions, and new technology like Apple CarPlay and a wireless phone charging station. It’s not the only vehicle that has caught the attention of buyers in Glendale Heights and Bloomingdale, though.

The 2016 Toyota Avalon certainly has appeal with its V6 engine and solid reputation. There are some substantial differences between these large sedans, though, and the 2016 Chevrolet Impala gets the edge where it matters. Check out this comparison before taking the trip to Sunrise Chevrolet for a test drive of the 2016 Chevrolet Impala.
