Chevrolet Impala
2017
Chevrolet Impala 2017 sedan Trim Shown: 2017 Premier sedan FWD Automatic

Our top scoring large sedan, the Impala is roomy, comfortable, quiet, and enjoyable to drive. It even rides like a luxury sedan, feeling cushy and controlled. Engine choices include a punchy 3.6-liter V6 and an adequate 2.5-liter four-cylinder, both paired with a six-speed automatic. In our tests, the V6 returned 22 mpg overall and had good acceleration. Braking is capable, and handling is secure and responsive. The full-featured cabin stays very quiet and features a sumptuous backseat. Controls are intuitive and easy to use, but rear visibility is restricted. Advanced electronic safety features are readily available. Recent updates include the addition of Apple CarPlay capability and wireless cell-phone charging.

2014-2016
2014 Redesign Year
Chevrolet Impala 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 LT

For 2014, the Impala was completely redesigned. With a contemporary interior and powertrain, as well as impressive ride and handling, it became one of our top-rated sedans. The spacious and quiet cabin features generally high-quality materials and trim. Get the 2LT to garner Impala's advanced safety systems. The Convenience package includes the rear-view camera, which is essential, given the Impala's poor rear visibility. The Driver Confidence package adds forward-collision warning, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot detection and lane departure warning. Changes for 2015 included standard WiFi hotspot capability and the addition of a new start/stop system for the four-cylinder. A compressed natural gas (CNG) version was also offered. Updates for 2016 included Apple CarPlay capability and wireless cell phone charging.

2006 Redesign Year
Chevrolet Impala 2013 Trim Shown: 2013 Others

The 2006 freshening brought updated engines. Performance got better while fuel economy stayed at an acceptable 20 mpg. Though ride and handling are sound, they lag behind those of many competitors. On the other hand, the revised interior is comfortable and has logical controls. Still, wind noise is notable and the engine isn't particularly refined. A powerful V8 was optional for a few years. A more potent V6 engine and a new six-speed automatic transmission debuted for 2012.

2000-2005
Chevrolet Impala 2005 Trim Shown: 2005 Sedan

While this version of the Impala doesn't stand out against its contemporaries, it seats six with a front bench seat. Its various V6 engines got the job done, but weren't very smooth or refined. Ride and handling are mediocre by modern standards. Front head- and legroom are generous and the front seats are reasonably comfortable. However, the rear bench is uncomfortable and too low.
