The Impala has three trim levels to choose between. The first trim is very basic with very few features and doesn’t gain too many features until you reach the Premier trim. This Premier trim tops it off with all the previous trim package options. It also comes with the opportunity to add the LT Convenience, Midnight Edition Appearance, or the Premier Confidence packages. Each of these would need to be added to bring this trim closer to the Charger’s level.


The Impala has a fairly slow engine in comparison with the Charger and it hides most of its features behind packages, even though the trims should be more inclusive as there are seven less of them. With these in mind, the Charger stands out as a clearly better choice.
