For a well-appointed full-size sedan boasting confident performance at a reasonable price, the 2015 Chevrolet Impala delivers on all fronts. Back in the Florence and Cincinnati area this year with a new bio-fuel model and Internet connectivity, the Impala gives buyers more for less. Consider how it compares to the 2015 Volkswagen CC to understand the ways in which it exceeds the competition.

Starting Price

2015 ImpalaWhile the 2015 Chevrolet Impala comes competitively equipped with high-quality standard features from the base model up, it’s still more accessible than the 2015 Volkswagen CC’s base model. The Volkswagen CC starts at an expensive $25,375, while the Impala comes in well below that figure at $27,060.

Powertrain Performance

2015 ImpalaTo get more powerful performance from a larger sedan, the 2015 Chevrolet Impala doesn’t disappoint. The most powerful powertrain on the Impala is a 3.6L V6 that makes 305 hp while reaching 60 mph in just 6.7 seconds. The 2015 Volkswagen CC, however, runs on a 3.6L V6 of its own but only gets 280 hp while clocking 7.0 seconds to hit 60 mph.

Advanced Safety Features

2015 ImpalaYou can’t do better than the 2015 Chevrolet Impala when it comes to safety and protection features.

  • 2015 Chevy Impala Safety Features: Available on lower trims as an Advanced Safety Package and standard on the top model are a number of the most advanced safety features available on the auto market right now. This includes systems and alerts geared toward forward collisions, blind spot monitoring, lane departure, and rear cross-traffic. Additionally, buyers can opt for an automatic braking system in the topmost trim’s adaptive cruise control to help prevent frontal crashes.
  • 2015 Volkswagen CC Safety Features: Unlike the Impala, the CC offers limited safety features. The range of alerts and warning programs are absent, as well as an automatic braking system.

Premium Features

2015 ImpalaWhen it comes to getting a better bundle of high-tech, convenience, and comfort, the 2015 Chevrolet Impala again beats out the 2015 Volkswagen CC.

  • 2015 Chevy Impala Features: All versions of the Impala come with keyless entry, an eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat, and an OnStar emergency communications system that also converts the vehicle into an Internet hotspot for up to seven devices.
  • 2015 Volkswagen CC Features: This sedan doesn’t come outfitted with 4G LTE Wi-Fi as the Impala. And while the CC does have other standard features like Bluetooth, satellite radio, and iPod integration, they come at a higher price.

Warranty Coverage

2015 ImpalaWhile both the 2015 Volkswagen CC and the 2015 Chevrolet Impala come standard with a three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty, the Impala offers more peace of mind in all other warranty areas. Every Impala boasts a generous five-year / 100,000-mile powertrain/drivetrain limited warranty, a five-year / 100,000-mile roadside assistance program, and a two-year maintenance warranty.

The CC gets less coverage in all these areas with only a one-year maintenance warranty, roadside assistance for three years or up to 36,000 miles, and a lesser five-year / 60,000-mile powertrain/drivetrain limited warranty.

Passenger and Cargo Space

When it comes to maximizing space for big trips with the whole family, the 2015 Chevrolet Impala is the obvious choice, easily beating out the 2015 Volkswagen CC in both categories. The Impala provides plenty of space in the front and the back for up to fiveadult passengers with 123.8 cubic feet inside the cabin. It does this without compromising on cargo room as well, which measures in at an abundant 18.8 cubic feet.

Meanwhile, the CC offers up a more cramped area for passengers, at 106.8 cubic feet, and delivers less cargo room as well at just 13.2 cubic feet.
