Editor's Overview

Although 2013 marks the final year of production for the current ninth generation Chevrolet Impala, this big American full-size sedan still offers modern niceties like live OnStar assistance and mobile application connectivity. And despite its cavernous interior quarters, roomy trunk and available seating for six, the Impala’s direct fuel-injected V6 delivers 30 mph on the highway.

This car is the total package.

I have had my car for five years now, putting around twenty thousand miles on it each year, and I haven't had to do anything to it other than maintaining the normal things like tires and oil changes. I do not think you can ask any more of a car than that. But this car does give you more. It provides an extremely comfortable ride. The fuel mileage is better than would be expected for a car of this size. It also has plenty of power for those times when you need power. All in all I would say this is one of the best decisions I have ever made.

- Marsha L

Handles wonderfully with incredible trunk space as well.

The Impala performs nicely overall. It has great pick up and is easy to handle. The trunk is unbelievably spacious and has proved to be invaluable. The seats are very comfortable and well designed. While the trunk is wonderfully large, it can cause a problem for riders in the back seat. They have very little leg room and makes long trips with four people very hard to do. My only other complaint, believe it or not, is about the cup holders in front. They are very close together and the lids often catch on each other and open.

- Erin C

They have Bluetooth, phone access. Dual heat and air control.

The newer Impalas are reliable, good on gas, comfortable to ride in, and on long trips. Our little dog loves riding in it too! We have owned five Chevrolet Impalas, in the past 20 years. To me they are the best on the road. I feel safe while riding or driving. We have only had one or two minor repairs on the oldest car. We sold one of ours to my stepson, when he moved to Charleston s. C. And it started right up after hurricane flooding! If Chevrolet made a SUV that I could like, I'd buy one!
