The 2014 Chevy Impala vs. the 2013 Nissan Maxima

2014 Chevrolet Impala 2With a bold looking redesign, the 2014 Chevy Impala has once again moved to the front of the four-door car class. An impressive amount of power, a comfortable interior, and a great list of features help to make it a top pick. These features include Chevrolet’s MyLink system, giving you access to handsfree communication, vehicle diagnostics, and more.

While it offers many of the same features as the 2014 Impala, the 2013 Nissan Maxima still falls short in that category. This is in addition to the Impala’s starting price being several thousand lower than the Maxima’s. Here’s how the two models match up.


While the 2013 Nissan Maxima comes standard with a V6, the 2014 Impala gives drivers the options of both a four-cylinder and V6. The four-cylinder means drivers can get a better estimated fuel economy rating of 31 mpg on the highway. This is compared with the estimated 26 mpg highway on the Maxima.

Drivers wanting to trade up to the Impala’s V6 option will be happy to know that it gets a smooth estimated 29 mpg, while still getting more horsepower than the Maxima.

Vehicle Features

  • Satellite radio
  • An Onboard handsfree communication system
  • Front floor mats
