Chevrolet Impala Overview

The large Impala, redesigned for 2014, is now a fully modern car that's roomy, comfortable, quiet, and enjoyable to drive. Engine choices include a punchy 3.6-liter V6, a decent 2.5-liter four-cylinder, and the 2.4-liter four with eAssist. All are paired with a six-speed automatic. The V6 version accelerates and brakes capably, with secure and responsive handling. The ride is like that of a luxury sedan, cushy and controlled, and the well-endowed cabin stays very quiet. The roomy interior has a sumptuous back seat and a huge trunk. Controls are intuitive and easy to use, but rear visibility is restricted by the high package shelf. Advanced electronic safety features are readily available. A V6 version that can run primarily on compressed natural gas (CNG), and switch to regular gasoline when the CNG tank is depleted, will debut in 2015.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
