The 2019 Chevrolet Impala is a full-size sedan that offers two naturally aspirated engines. Rolling on a mid-size platform, the 2018 Honda Accord is a sedan that offers two turbocharged engines and a hybrid system. The Chevrolet Infotainment System and Bose Centerpoint audio system give the Impala an edge over the Accord in digital technology. Both sedans have the latest accident-mitigation technology, including automatic braking.
The 2019 Chevy Impala is available with a V6 engine block that displaces 3.6 L on every full combustion cycle. Capable of generating up to 305 horsepower, this naturally aspirated powertrain utilizes direct injection. If you’re looking for a more efficient option, get the 2.5 L ECOTEC engine that has the Stop/Start technology. In stark contrast, the 2018 Honda Accord’s 1.5 L turbocharged engine can’t exceed the 192-hp mark. Running on the VTEC mechanism, this compact powertrain simply can’t compete with the Impala’s six-cylinder engine. Rated at 252 hp, the Accord’s 2.0 L turbo engine also doesn’t come close to matching the capabilities of this Chevy’s V6 powertrain. However, Honda deserves credit for integrating a hybrid system under the hood of the 2018 Accord. The Eco Assist technology also helps the gasoline VTEC engine achieve good fuel economy.
The all-new Chevrolet Infotainment System is available in the 2019 Impala. You’ll see plenty of connectivity options on the 8-inch touch screen. For example, Google Maps will appear on the main menu when you sync a smartphone with Android Auto. Your favorite iOS applications can also be imported through Apple CarPlay. Using the latest OnStar technology, the WiFi network in this full-size sedan runs on 4G LTE speeds. Additionally, a wireless charging hub is available in this premium Chevy model. Wireless internet and wireless phone charging are standard only in the 2018 Accord Touring edition. Carrying the Bose Centerpoint label, the Impala’s sound system is connected to SiriusXM Satellite Radio and Pandora Internet Radio. This signature audio system includes 11 speakers that surely generate much better acoustics than the Accord’s eight speakers, which are rated at only 180 watts.
The 2019 Chevy Impala has 10 standard airbags that cushion occupants from all directions. Knee airbags, side curtain airbags and roof-rail airbags offer reliable protection during severe crashes. This full-size sedan also boasts plenty of accident-mitigation features, like the Forward Collision Alert and Forward Automatic Braking. The updated Adaptive Cruise Control lets you adjust the gap between this Chevy and another automobile that’s moving in front. Do you get anxious when switching lanes on the highway? The Lane Change Alert and Lane Departure Warning provide excellent guidance. You should also keep an eye on the Side Blind Zone Alert when trying to quickly move into an adjacent lane. The Honda Sensing package in the 2018 Accord matches most of the active safety amenities that are available in the 2019 Impala. However, this Chevy model has a clear advantage in passive safety and security.
