Overview

Learn about the Chevrolet Impala

Summary

The Chevrolet Impala is huge for a sedan, especially when it comes to the trunk. Add superb tech integration to that space, and you’ve got a winning formula for a mid-class car that pleases families and solo commuters alike. With solid safety features and a comfortable, thoughtfully designed cabin, there’s a reason the Impala’s been a steady seller for almost 60 years. Newer generations look extra sleek, though some drivers find that the standard four-cylinder engine lacks the oomph to really deliver on speed. If you’re after a roaring acceleration, you might want to upgrade to the Premier trim’s 3.6 L engine.

Safety

Airbags are standard across all trims, and models as early as the 2009 come with four-wheel anti-lock brakes and traction control, which help you stop without skidding, as well as front-seat and full-length side curtain airbags and OnStar, so you're never without help if you' find yourself in an emergency. For advanced collision technology, which alerts the driver of potential dangers so you can better avoid a crash, you’ll have to look to high-end trims. Systems available in the 2019 model include:

  • Lane departure warning system to keep you from drifting
  • Adaptive cruise control to take pressure off long drives
  • Rearview camera for easy parking and reversing
  • Rear cross-traffic alert system so you’re always aware of oncoming cars

Interior

Impalas old and new use modern designs that aren’t too overstated. You’ll find neat trimming on all the seats, and the driver’s spot grants easy access to controls. There’s also plenty of space in the rear for passengers to stretch out if needed. One slight sticking point for some drivers is the fact that the roof pillars can hinder visibility. 

Technology

The Chevrolet Impala has been a pioneer in the tech game for years. Even in the previous generation’s models, you’ll find satellite radio, auxiliary inputs for connectivity and the option of an impressive 8-speaker Bose system in top trims. With the 2019 generation comes a whole new level of tech package, including:

  • Vehicle Wi-Fi hotspotting 
  • 8-inch touchscreen display with hands-free functions such as voice navigation and messaging
  • Ability to lock up, start your car, check the status of your oil filter and even book a service appointment all from your smartphone

2016+ models with the MyLink infotainment system are compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay—although some vehicles will require a software update from a Chevrolet dealer to activate this functionality.

Space

For a sedan, the Impala has a generous amount of cabin space. The 18.8 cubic-foot trunk is enormous for its car class, so you’re well set up for an extended road trip or a family camping excursion. You’ll have ample head and legroom in both the front and the back of the cabin, and storage slots in the doors give you that extra bit of flexibility.

Comfort

While it’s not as luxurious (or pricey) as higher-end vehicles, it’s clear that the Impala puts comfort at the forefront of the interior design. Lumbar-support seats are powered and fully adjustable, and the responsive suspension makes for a smooth ride. The Impala is also very quiet when on the move, with minimal wind and road noise getting through to the cabin.

Frequently asked questions

All Chevrolet Impalas are either front- or rear-wheel drive. Older generations tend to be rear-wheel drive only, with newer generations having front-wheel drive.

While continued in other markets, the Chevrolet Impala will no longer be distributed in Canada after the fourth quarter of 2019.
