Safety

Both sedans include many standard safety features. Seatbelts, airbags, four-wheel ABS, and an electronic stability system will keep you protected on the road. On paper, both appear to be good choices. But in practice, the Avalon has the edge. In governmental safety tests by the NHTSA, the Avalon received a perfect score of 5 stars. The Impala only received a 4-star rating. Further, the Avalon has seats that were specially designed to reduce whiplash in case of an accident. The Impala does not offer this feature.

Performance

When comparing the base engines, the Avalon has the clear advantage with its 3.5L DOHC V6 engine. The Impala’s 2.5L DOHC 4-cylinder has 72 fewer horsepower and 62 less lb-ft of torque. This difference is clear on the road. The Avalon can accelerate from 0 to 100 mph in 14.8 seconds, while the Impala takes 24.5 seconds to do the same. The Avalon is also more efficient with 31 mpg on the highway, compared to the Impala’s 29 mpg.

Ergonomics

Both vehicles include a number of amenities for convenience, but the Toyota Avalon goes the extra mile. Many standard features on the Avalon are only available for an upcharge on the Impala. The Avalon features automatic dimming high beams and heated front seats as standard features. The Chevy Impala does not. The Avalon has standard heated mirrors and dual zone air conditioning, while the Impala charges extra for those features.
