Chevrolet Impalas of the 1960’s were immensely popular cars, for many good reasons. They combined youthful design with a graceful elegance that embodied the brand’s promise of offering more than you would expect from the automakers. For 2014 Chevrolet has substantially upped the Impala’s game in its look, features and premium interior quality. The 2014 Impala is available with land-departure control, adaptive cruise control, a heated steering wheel, heated and cooled seats and an infotainment system that’s very much similar as the new Cadillac User Experience (CUE). The popular mid-level Impala LT trim looks like it could be a top of the range LTZ, and the LTZ’s décor is rich enough to be in a Buick LaCrosse.
The design is what makes it look more premium. A good mix of sport and luxury combines it to give a handsome inside look. The Impala gets a very stylish, Corvette-inspired dual cockpit, with rich-looking padding covering the gauge cluster cowl and part of the dash. Like a fine handmade suit, Impala is meticulously tailored. With its flowing instrument panel, available woodgrain, chrome accents and French stitching, it makes everyday driving feel impeccably elegant.
The 2014 Impala is a vision of the future that lives for today. Every contour, every line, every last detail, handsomely sculpted , thoughtfully designed and elegantly refined are the ways in which you can sum up the greatness of this Chevrolet vehicle. Chevrolet also becomes the first brand to offer a conventional naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine in the full size sedans class. Compared with the Ford Taurus, the 2014 Impala is quite, athletic and more confident on the road. The Chevy’s electronic power steering is lighter and more direct which provides good feedback from road imperfections. The 2014 Impala simply feels sleeker and more buttoned-down than nearly all the cars of same class. The 3.6L base engine remains one of the GM’s best engines, and it doesn’t disappoint in the 2014 Impala. It feels quicker, and its six-speed automatic snicks off up shifts smoothly and quietly. The official fuel consumption is listed at 99L/100km city and 6.3 on highway. The 2014 Chevy gets round moderately fast country road corners with well controlled body roll for a two ton full-size sedan. Chevrolet got the big family car’s ride-handling balance right.
