2017 Nissan Maxima

2017 Nissan Maxima vs 2017 Chevy Impala in Joliet, IL

On the hunt for a new full-size sedan? Unsure where to start? Thomas Nissan is home to the exceptional 2017 Maxima, which is sure to check every box on your “must have” list. We are so sure you’ll fall in love with the Maxima, we have compared it to one of its top competitors with our 2017 Nissan Maxima vs the 2017 Chevy Impala in Joliet, IL, comparison, so you can see just how superior it truly is.

We started things off with a look under the hood of both the 2017 Nissan Maxima and the 2017 Chevy Impala. You’ll feel immense power from the standard 3.5L V6 engine in the Maxima, which produces a staggering 300 horsepower and 261 lb.-ft. of torque. The Impala falls short in a big way, as it is only standard with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine with 196 horsepower and 186 lb.-ft. of torque. You’ll have to upgrade to a top trim of the Impala to feel such power. And, when you do, the Maxima will be more efficient with its fuel rating of 21/30 MPG city/hwy1. The V6 in the Impala only has a fuel rating of 18/28 MPG city/hwy2.

Our head-to-head between the 2017 Nissan Maxima vs the 2017 Chevy Impala in Joliet, IL, compared exterior features. The Maxima comes standard with fog lights, so you’ll have a clear view of the road during inclement weather. The Impala doesn’t have fog lights within any trim level. The Maxima even boasts standard LED Daytime Running Lights, which you won’t have on the Impala until you’re in a higher trim level.

There are even more differences once you have a seat inside. You’ll notice that the 2017 Maxima comes standard with push button start, dual zone climate control, and even a leather-wrapped steering wheel. You won’t have any of these features in the 2017 Impala until you upgrade to a higher trim level. For maximum comfort, only the Maxima comes with Zero Gravity seats, which were designed to reduce muscle fatigue as they take the pressure off your lower back. Even better, the Maxima boasts power-adjustable front seats as standard, so you can easily find your preferred driving position. In the Impala, your front seat passenger won’t have a power-adjustable seat until the LT trim of the Impala. To let in some Vitamin D into your cabin, open the available dual panel moonroof in the Maxima. In the Impala, you’ll only have an available regular-sized moonroof.

The Nissan Maxima triumphs over the Chevrolet Impala when it comes to exciting technology, too. The standard touchscreen in the Maxima is eight inches, while the one in the Impala is a measly 4.2-inch display. While both of these full-size sedans have Apple CarPlay™3,4, it is only standard in the Maxima. Most notable is that the Maxima has Bluetooth® technology5 standard for hands-free calling and audio streaming. The Impala only has standard Bluetooth® technology6 for hands-free calling, so if you’d like to stream your personal playlist, you’ll have to upgrade to the LT trim. And, since the Maxima comes with an 8-speaker sound system, these tunes will sound way better than they will in the Impala, which only has a standard 6-speaker sound system.

Here at Thomas Nissan, we think the choice between the 2017 Nissan Maxima vs the 2017 Chevy Impala in Joliet, IL, is an obvious one. When you’re ready to learn more about the Maxima, visit our showroom floor. Our sales staff can answer any question you may have about this dynamic full-size sedan.
