2017 Nissan Maxima vs 2017 Chevy Impala near Washington, DC

See the Maxima Edge Out the Competition!

When it comes to competition, we at Pohanka Nissan think that friendly rivalry is a good thing, but we also are pretty confident that the Maxima will always come out on top. For those reasons, and to lend a helping hand in your full-size sedan search, we’ve put together this comparison between the 2017 Nissan Maxima vs the 2017 Chevy Impala near Washington, DC. These two sedans are a fairly matched pair and it’ll be a close one, so let’s get started!

Let’s begin with the heart of the beast: the engine. Pumping out 300 horsepower, the Maxima’s standard 3.5-liter V6 engine is a force to be reckoned with, especially considering its efficiency fuel rating of 21/30 MPG city/hwy1. On the other hand, the Chevrolet Impala only comes standard with a 4-cylinder engine that generates a measly 197 horsepower. If you want to pay more for the highest trim, you can attain a 3.6-liter V6 engine boasting comparable horsepower, but it’ll cost you!

LED Daytime Running Lights will always keep your path illuminated while driving the Maxima, whereas the Impala only provides Halogen lamps as standard, which consume more energy and have shorter lifespans. We think you’ve got a pretty good idea where this comparison between the 2017 Nissan Maxima vs the 2017 Chevy Impala near Washington, DC, is heading, but let’s take it home.

Technology is an inescapable part of society these days, and it’s become a necessary addition to vehicle cabins. The Maxima 100 percent takes that into account, boasting NissanConnectSM with Navigation featuring Apple CarPlayTM2 as standard. Easily pair your phone via Bluetooth®3 to rock out to your favorite playlists, or even send text messages if you’re an iPhone®4 user. SiriusXM® Satellite Radio5 comes standard, as well as HD RadioTM, two illuminated USB ports6, and the speed-sensitive volume control means you can focus on what’s important: driving. It’ll all sounds crystal clear, too, thanks to the standard eight speakers that fill the cabin!

Conversely, the Impala does not come standard with a telematics system until the second trim level, and has Navigation7 as only optional on the top two trims. You’ll only find one USB port8, and only six speakers come standard, making it two short of the Maxima.

It’s clear to see who the winner of this comparison between the 2017 Nissan Maxima vs the 2017 Chevy Impala near Washington, DC, is. The 2017 Maxima can be found in all of its glory at Pohanka Nissan seven days a week, or give us a call at 540-684-6276!
