Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

On the road, the Impala comes across as a near-athletic performer, adeptly balancing ride comfort and handling. In the substantial-size premium sedan category, the Impala ranks among the best for road manners.

Quick and accurate, belt-driven electric power steering never feels either sluggish or too heavy. Rebound springs help keep body lean under control. Overall composure and balance score ahead of several competitors, including Toyota Avalon, Hyundai Azera, and Ford Taurus.

Excellent suspension damping keeps the ride well-controlled, though it feels a bit stiffer when rolling over small bumps than when encountering large ones. Ride motions are subtly but effectively restrained.

Performance with the four-cylinder engine is just fine for commuter duty and most family tasks; but when extra energy is needed for passing or merging, reserve power is in short supply. With the optional V6 engine, acceleration ranks as vivid, actually approaching sport-sedan capability.

A V6 Impala can actually feel as if it’s wearing an SS emblem, though acceleration is swifter while rolling down the road than when starting off from a stoplight. Accelerating to 60 mph in about 6.8 seconds, the V6 version delivers the kind of smooth, strong power that inspires confidence.

Manual-shift mode may be activated via a shift-lever switch, though the tall center console makes that action rather awkward. All told, the Impala’s 6-speed doesn’t operate quite as seamlessly as some earlier GM transmissions. Reactions are quick, but lack of smooth foot action can result in imperfect responses.

Walk Around

Sharing its foundation with the Buick LaCrosse and Cadillac XTS, Chevrolet’s Impala displays similar proportions. More restrained up front than other Chevrolet models, it benefits from crisp body lines and a sophisticated overall profile. Even the hood looks clean and invigorating, despite its array of stamped-in lines and ribs.

At the rear is an intricate intersection of surfaces, not unlike that portion of Buick’s LaCrosse. All told, it’s one of GM’s prime examples of intermingling visual details of related models, while keeping the brands clearly distinct from each other.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

More spacious than such competitors as the Toyota Avalon and Hyundai Azera, the Impala has ample room for five and luggage collection, though four might be more comfortable.

Although the sweeping dual-cowl dashboard looks lovely, it suffers from a mishmash of textures, lines, and materials, creating an excessively complex appearance. Shapes are attractive, but the overall execution goes several steps too far.

Front seats provide greater support than nearly all rivals, along with head and leg space that will readily accommodate nearly any body type. The power driver’s seat has an especially broad height range.

Although the back seat is wide, its cushion is low, flat, and a tad short. Even so, headroom is on the tight side, while support could be better. Legroom is quite good throughout the cabin, nearing limousine-level in the rear. Still, some evidence of skimping in the rear compartment can be discerned.

Unlike some comparable full-size sedans, the Impala doesn’t feel as big as its dimensions suggest. Entry/exit is helped by tall, wide doors and well-shaped seats that don’t demand much knee-bending.

Trunk space is bountiful at 18.8 cubic feet, and the cockpit contains plenty of storage bins. Although the trunk is a bit shallow, its flat floor extends a considerable distance forward.


New Car Test Drive

Chevrolet can take pride in its current Impala, which blends attractive body lines with well-composed handling and a satisfying ride. Because the base model is short on features, an LT makes more sense for most families. Though tempting for passing power, the available V6 sucks up considerably more fuel.
