2019 Volkswagen Arteon vs 2019 Chevy Impala

Red 2019 Volkswagen Arteon set against a gray 2019 Chevy Malibu

If you are on the hunt for a new car that is spacious for you and your passengers, then we recommend looking at available full-sized models. A full-sized car is large (though not as large as the vehicles from the 1950s) and offers plenty of space for passengers – especially those who are tall in stature. The new 2019 Volkswagen Arteon has only been on the market for a short while and already it has been lauded by critics and consumers for its comfortable ride, fun driving dynamics, and state-of-the-art interior technology. But like any newcomer, the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon needs to prove itself against longtime market staples like the 2019 Chevy Impala. To help you decide which model is right for you, we have put together a comparison.

What Makes the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon the Better Buy?

There are several reasons to love the new 2019 Volkswagen Arteon. While it comes with one engine option compared to the 2019 Chevy Impala’s two, it offers a happy medium when it comes to horsepower. This is all thanks to the turbo technology that was specially designed by Volkswagen’s world-renowned engineering team. That turbo technology not only allows the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon engine to crank out the most thrilling ride, but also stay easy on fuel. 

We also love that the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon comes available with 4MOTION all-wheel drive, which will provide the perfect amount of power and traction when the roads get slippery during the winter season. That means you will be able to get to work or head home for the holidays more easily! 

And speaking of the holidays, you can also easily bring along extra luggage or large gifts with the help of the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon model’s spacious trunk, which is substantially larger than the one for the 2019 Chevy Impala.
