2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe vs. 2017 Chevrolet Impala Sedan
Alpharetta drivers shopping for an efficient yet well-appointed vehicle often lean toward the Chevy Impala – a longtime favorite. Capable and bubbling with features, the 2017 Chevrolet Impala makes a convincing case when it comes to proving its worth: $27,300 starting MSRP. Priced at a base rate of $42,650, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe sets the bar in performance, comfort, and safety – making it a worthwhile investment. To demonstrate the superiority of the C-Class Coupe, we’ve matched it up against the Chevy Impala. Read on to see what makes the C-Class Coupe a better buy!
Power, Fuel Economy, and Handling
The 2017 Chevrolet Impala Sedan is motivated by a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine rated at a practical 197 hp. With its base 2.5L engine, the Chevy Impala earns an EPA-estimated 22 mpg city/30 mpg highway rating. Although it appears the Impala masterfully blends power and efficiency, it falls short when compared to the capabilities of the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe.
The 2017 C 300 Coupe features a 241-hp 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine with EPA-estimated ratings of 23 mpg city/30 mpg highway. On the Impala and C-Class Coupe, you’ll find a manually interactive automatic transmission, 18-inch wheels, and electric power steering. Unlike the Impala, though, the C 300 includes a sport brake system and DYNAMIC SELECT® – a multi-mode drive program with five selectable settings.
Exterior and Interior Features
Starting at $35,645, the top-tier 2017 Chevy Impala Premier aims for maximum comfort with a sunroof, HID headlights, power-adjustable front seats, and a leather-wrapped and multi-functional steering wheel. Stacked up against the entry-level 2017 C 300 Coupe’s offerings, however, the Impala Premier’s feature set loses much of its charm. The C-Class Coupe includes many of the same attractions, and in some cases, enhances them. These are just a few of the exclusive features you can expect from the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe:
- LED headlamps and taillamps
- Panorama sunroof with a power sunshade
- Driver memory settings for the seat, exterior mirrors, and steering column
- Seatbelt presenters
- HomeLink™ garage door opener
- Auto-dimming rearview and driver-side mirrors
Standard Safety Equipment
Equipped with features like StabiliTrak, available Forward Collision Alert, and OnStar telematics, the 2017 Chevrolet Impala emphasizes safety and security. Yet again, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe counters with its own impressive array of features, which includes Electronic Stability Program, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS®, and Mercedes-Benzmbrace® Connect® telematics. In addition, the C-Class Coupe boasts a few features that are simply unavailable for the Chevy Impala:
- Rain-Sensing Wipers: These windshield wipers automatically adjust their intermittent frequencies, based on the amount of rain.
- PRESAFE®: As a pre-collision system, PRESAFE® detects instability and braces the cabin for an impact or rollover.
- ATTENTION ASSIST®: This driver attention monitor keeps track of your driving behaviors on long trips, and alerts you if you begin to lose focus.
