As you can see, both provide upwards of 300 horsepower and over 20 combined miles per gallon, helping you go further and see more without worrying about the tank. However, for those desiring a bit more punch and functionality out of their drive, the 2017Genesis offers features that the Impala simply cannot.

Rear-Wheel Drive and an available Brembo® brake system also add sporty elements to your driving experience. Stepping inside, premium quality leather seating, a leather trimmed steering wheel and 6-inch touchscreen add much needed serenity as the chaos of life passes by around you. Altogether, the Genesis is a masterpiece waiting for you to jump in and see what else it can do.
