2020 Chevrolet Impala vs Honda Accord

The 2020 Chevrolet Impala and 2020 Honda Accord are two contenders in the midsize sedan class. Both offer comfort and style, but the clear differences will make the Impala your choice.

Design and Safety Features

 The 2020 Chevrolet Impala’s quality and value make this sedan a great option. It offers a plush ride with plenty of passenger and cargo space. The Impala seats five people comfortably with plenty of rear-seat space. With 18.8 cubic feet of space, the Impala’s trunk is one of the roomiest in its class. The standard split-folding rear seats create even more space, and their seatbacks fold level with the trunk floor. Its well-designed cabin comes standard with cloth and synthetic leather upholstery, as well as an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. A rearview camera is a standard safety feature, but there are plenty of available safety features including, forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane change alert, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control.

The 2020 Honda Accord has nearly as much cabin space as the Impala, but it’s a bit shorter. This sedan seats up to five people and offers standard cloth upholstery. There is enough legroom in both rows, but headroom gets a bit tight in the back for taller passengers. The Accord has a 16.7-cubic-foot trunk with a narrow opening that makes it tricky to load cargo. Lower seating position also hampers your entry and exit out of the car. Standard safety features include a rearview camera and automatic high-beam headlights as well as Honda Sensing suite.
