2019 Chevrolet Impala vs. Its Competition

2019 Chevrolet Impala
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The eye-catching Toyota Avalon is the current full-size sedan to beat with its strong V-6 engine and thrifty hybrid option.

The Buick LaCrosse builds on the Impala with a nicer interior and an optional mild-hybrid engine, but it can be eye-wateringly expensive in most configurations.

The Nissan Maxima tries to be sporty and somewhat succeeds.

Better on the sporty scale is the Dodge Charger, a sedan with personality that’s starting to feel very old.

Its more luxurious sibling, the Chrysler 300, oozes style—but that may be too much for some buyers.
