Chevrolet Impala

The Chevrolet Impala is a full-size sedan that emphasizes comfort and technology over sporty dynamics in a field with narrowing options.

When Chevrolet sent the first Impala off the assembly line in 1958, it was meant to be "a prestige car within the reach of the average American citizen." Decades later, the Chevrolet Impala is still one of America's best known nameplates, and it's a fine option for consumers seeking a large, comfy sedan that doesn't skimp on the latest technology.

The modern Chevy Impala offers a roomy interior that easily accommodates 6-footers, along with competent and (increasingly) fuel-efficient engines. The highway ride is notably quiet, and although you don't expect much athleticism from a car this large, later Impalas feel steady and secure around turns. Recent Impalas also stand out for their striking interior design, touchscreen control interface for audio and navigation functions, and plentiful safety features.
