About Chevrolet Impala

The 2017 Chevrolet Impala offers an impressive combination of spaciousness, comfort and value for families and individuals seeking a full-size sedan. Substantial yet stylish, the Impala still looks fresh from a recent revamp that transformed Chevy's biggest sedan from staid to standout. While demand for full-size sedans is declining, the Impala remains relevant thanks to modern safety and tech features, a choice of 4- or 6-cylinder engines, and the largest trunk in its class. Starting around $28,000, the Impala buys a lot of car for the money, though unlike the Toyota Avalon, Kia Cadenza and Dodge Charger, a V6 is extra. Still, the Impala has impressed us enough to win the Kelley Blue Book Best Buy award for its class two years in a row.

"I purchased a 2017 Impala, Premier trim, silver, with optional 20 inch wheels. It has every option but the radar cruise control with automatic braking. I was looking for a large comfortable sedan with plenty of horsepower, safety and technology. I looked at cars like the new Buick Lacrosse, and Chrysler 300, but as I added options they quickly moved past $41K. However Chevy was offering 20% off MSRP on 2017 Impalas, which put this car right in my affordability range. Sticker was $40400 before the discount. The car looks fantastic in silver with the 20 inch wheels. However the 20 inch low profile tires are not suited for winter driving here in Upstate NY. I was also concerned about the salt slowly destroying the finish on the beautiful wheels. Therefore I purchased a set of snow tires and wheels from Tire Rack. In case you are wondering why I didn't get the radar cruise control, it requires that the front grill has a black plastic piece that hides the sensors. This ruins the look of the front in my opinion, I prefer the full chrome grill. Inside I was very impressed with the design details and options. My last car was a 2007 Mazda 6, and a lot has changed. This has both heated and ventilated seats, 110V outlets in the center console and the rear, USB ports of course, a hidden compartment behind the center touch display, and surprisingly a cubby with a wireless phone charger. Underneath the heater controls is a lid you can push to reveal a cubby with the wireless charging pad. I had an issue with the rubber pad as it was too thick for my phone to charge. Fortunately it's removable, so I put that in the glove box, and put a patch of thin rubber carpet padding in the cubby for my phone to sit on. Works great and no one sees it. Apple Car Play and Android Auto are offered, but you have to connect the phone using a USB cable. I prefer to use the wireless bluetooth connection with the phone sitting in the charge cubby. I can take calls, and listen to music from my phone and it's displayed on the center screen and also the dashboard. It has Sirius XM, and navigation. I have tried the car's navigation once so far and it seems fairly responsive and easy to use. There is remote start on the key fob, and you can can start the car using the Chevy app on your mobile phone. This is a great feature and doesn't require me to be in sight of the car to start it. The car is connected to the internet, and you can check on car status like miles remaining, tire pressure, as well as send navigation destinations to it from your phone. There is a large moon roof that extends pass the front row into the second row. It has a power shade, and the glass over the front row opens. For safety features it has vehicle stability control, ABS, many airbags and side curtains, blind spot warning on the side mirrors, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic warning, head-on crash warning, and parking sensors. The rear cross traffic alert does not detect people walking by, just cars based on my experience so far. The ride is well dampened and quiet. I am running 17 inch snows right now, and I expect a little harsher ride with the low profile 20 inch tires in the Summer. I love the sound of the V6. Acceleration is really good, however when I am accelerating from a stop I notice that it wants to use a higher gear until I press down the gas pedal more and force it to down shift. This car has great passing power. So far I really enjoy this car and am very happy with my purchase."

"Mine is the base model with package -- LS with manual A/C, cloth seats, back-up beeper and cargo net. Superb highway car, very comfortable, surprisingly strong acceleration in the 65 to 90mph range, very quiet, decent stereo and sat radio. One major failing: headlight design and performance. Weak beam with little light to the sides, making country roads or sharp turns to right or left a nerve racking experience -- basically blind to the sides of the car. I just drove a Honda Accord for comparison. Standard halogens on that car are light years ahead (excuse the pun)."

"The vehicles I've had for the past ten years or so have been Sierras, Silverados, Tahoes, and bigger SUV's and trucks. I totaled my 2007 Tahoe and needed something different, and I'm very happy I decided to go with the Impala 2LZ. Sometimes, it feels like I have more shoulder, leg, and head room in my Impala than I did in my Tahoe. The 3.6L engine has very sufficient horsepower and torque, rated at 305/264, and the fuel economy is excellent for a car this size with that much power. I can easily average 22 mpg in the city, and averaged 32 mpg on a straight highway trip (it's rated at 19/29). The steering and handling feels precise and in control of the road, regardless of whatever curves and sudden stops are ahead of you. I can spin around corners at 40 miles an hour without slowing down. The cabin is extremely spacious and luxurious, with soft touch materials and unique stitching integrated into the doors and across the entire dash. Ambient blue lighting lights all four doors and the dash at night. The trunk is massive. The back seats fold completely flat, without being on an incline for max cargo space. Chevrolet MyLink is extremely intuitive with all the ways I can connect, navigate, make calls, control the radio. The navigation feature is very easy to read and understand, while giving you an attractive three dimensional map with 3D buildings. The voice recognition in the vehicle is much more receptive than I expected, and I use it all the time. Keeping your eyes on the road is easy, because you can control virtually everything on your steering wheel. Audio, phone, navigation, and vehicle info are all accessible through your steering wheel controls. The rising screen that hides additional storage is very useful, as I have been putting my phone charger there and other various items that otherwise would be laying in the middle compartment/cupholders. Rear leg space is more than enough, and you can fold down the rear headrests for better visibility out of the back glass. Ventilated seats, electric tilt, telescopic, and heated steering wheel, 3 USB ports, 12 way power seating on front seats, 11 speaker Bose, push button start, and a long list of very luxurious features sold me on this car. Though I was a bit skeptical about the new safety features at first(forward collision alert, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert), they've also been very useful, and I use them more than I thought I would. And I haven't even mentioned what an absolutely beautiful car it is, from front to back. The LED headlights and LED daytime running lamps make this car stand out, night or day. It even has LED tail lights. The LTZ's will add the chrome on the lower grille, mirror caps, handles, and body moldings. People compliment me every day on my Impala. This car is BEAUTIFUL. And it rides and handles better than a Lexus ES350. I know because I'm in the car business. You'll love this car. No doubt about it."
