2016 Chevrolet Impala

Pros: Broad range of models and optional equipment; quiet interior; large trunk; comfortable ride; good connectivity features

Cons: Mediocre rear visibility; sloping roofline cuts into headroom for rear-seat passengers

CG Says: For 2016, the Chevrolet Impala adds Apple CarPlay capability, wireless device-charging capability, and a Midnight Edition appearance package for V6-powered LT and LTZ models. Impala strong points include one of the most powerful V6 engines in the class, good passenger room, a pleasing ride, and a high level of quiet. The availability of a naturally aspirated 4-cylinder engine is a class exclusive for shoppers more interested in fuel economy than power. The best value probably comes from the mid-level LT, which, when optioned to the gunwales, still comes in a few hundred dollars below the starting price (with delivery) of an LTZ.  The Impala is also one of the few vehicles on the market to offer an engine that will run on compressed natural gas (CNG).
