In the following comparison between the Accord and Chevrolet Impala, you’ll see that not only will your life be affected by driving this Honda, but so will others.
Safety For You and Other Drivers
With the help of vehicle speed and seat sensors, smart airbags can be found throughout the cabin, which deploys at different levels of force to better protect passengers of all sizes. And if a child is sensed leaning against the door, the side airbag will shut off completely. The Impala doesn’t have smart airbags and will always deploy full force no matter the collision. Another critical safety feature found on the Accord is the driver alert monitor, which detects when a driver is inattentive and will sound a warning to suggest a break. This is important because according to the NHTSA, about 100,000 crashes and 1,500 deaths occur every year from drivers falling asleep at the wheel.
Saving The World and Your Wallet
Gas prices fluctuate all year long, and it can often lead to stressful situations. But the Accord has such an incredible fuel economy, that you’ll be spending less time at the pump with more cash in hand. Check out the chart below to see how it compares against the Impala:

The Accord also has a standard cap-less fueling system which cuts down on fuel evaporation and the need to fondle a gas cap, so you’ll be able to fill up with ease while reducing pollution! The Impala doesn’t have a cap-less fueling system, so you’ll still have to mess with a cap.
Don’t Drive Without These
The level of comfort and convenience in any vehicle is essential, and the Accord surpasses any competitor with its ergonomic features. The Touring model comes standard with a heads-up display that provides the driver with crucial instrument readouts without them having to divert their attention from the road. All of this information is projected in front of the driver’s line of sight, but the Impala doesn’t offer this feature so the driver will have to keep an eye out for road signs are vehicle notifications constantly. If you forget that your high beams are on while driving around at night, the Accord will be able to detect an oncoming vehicle and automatically switch them to low beams, so they’re not blinded.
