Performance numbers are strong in the new Impala. Under the hood of the Chevy’s full-size sedan, you’ll find a base 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that’s paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, giving you a strong 197-hp. You can upgrade to a powerful 3.6L V6 engine that generates 305 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque and works with variable valve timing (VVT) for added efficiency.

When it comes to the 2017 Volkswagen Passat, you’ll have a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine that gives you just 170 hp.If you upgrade to the 3.6L V6 engine, you’ll only get 280 hp, with a wide margin of power from that offered by the Chevrolet Impala. These engines are also paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, though they don’t offer nearly as much power.


Technology Features

Inside the 2017 Chevrolet Impala, you’ll have surprisingly advanced technology standard across the whole trim lineup, including a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot that you can hook up seven smart devices for a high-speed internet connection. An 8-inch touchscreen display lets you sync your smartphone and stream audio through apps or access navigation. An available Bose® 11-speaker sound system delivers high-quality listening, while OnStar® telematics gives you safety services like emergency crash notification and emergency roadside assistance. The 2017 VW Passat only offers a Fender 8-speaker sound system as the premium option, and there is no option of a high-speed Wi-FI connection.
