2017 Toyota Avalon vs 2017 Chevy Impala near Romeoville, IL

If you’re in the market for a full-size sedan, but aren’t sure where to turn, we can help! We at Thomas Toyota of Joliet put together a head-to-head battle of two of the most popular sedans in the segment: the 2017 Toyota Avalon vs 2017 Chevy Impala near Romeoville, IL. In just a few short paragraphs, it’s evident to see which one prevails and proves to be better equipped.

Living in the Midwest, we tend to veer towards vehicles that come equipped with an assortment of comfort features. And, in this comparison, we see that the Avalon packs on more amenities than the Impala. The Toyota Avalon comes standard with dual zone automatic climate control, which also feature rear-seat vents. The Impala does not offer this feature as standard, in fact, it's only available in the LT trim and above. Furthermore, if you’d prefer, you can also opt for three-zone climate control in the Avalon – an option not offered in the Impala.

Additionally, the Avalon continues to supplement its riders with optimal comfort with heated and ventilated seats. Heated front seats come standard in the Avalon, while they’re only available in higher trims of the Impala. Moreover, while both full-size sedans in this comparison of the 2017 Toyota Avalon vs 2017 Chevy Impala near Romeoville, IL, offer the availability of a ventilating function for the front seats, only the Avalon features an optional heating capability in the rear seat. Such amenity is not available at all in the Impala.

When it comes to entertainment, you often look for a vehicle that offers a plethora of features for you to enjoy. And, in this battle, the Avalon takes the cake. Standard in every trim level is a variation of the Entune™ Audio System. However, all boast amenities like Siri® Eyes Free1, SiriusXM® All Access2, Bluetooth®3 compatibility, and Scout® GPS Link App4. If you’re in the 2017 Impala, access to features such as these is possible with Chevrolet MyLink®5, which is only offered in higher trims.

On top of its interior qualities, the Impala continues to struggle to keep up with the Avalon in terms of performance. Although both sedans come equipped with a powerful engine, the Avalon pulls ahead. Underneath its hood, the 3.5L V6 powertrain comes standard. This engine delivers a thrilling 268 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque. When you’re behind the wheel of the Chevrolet Impala, you’ll have significantly less output from its standard 2.5L 4-cylinder powerhouse, which delivers just 197 horsepower and 191 lb.-ft. of torque.

That is all for this comparison of the 2017 Toyota Avalon vs 2017 Chevy Impala near Romeoville, IL – for now. Experience what else the Avalon has to offer here at your local Toyota dealer, Thomas Toyota of Joliet, today! We look forward to seeing you and showing you around this one-of-a-kind full-size sedan.
