2018 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: The Chevrolet Impala has few changes for 2018. All models now have standard keyless access/starting and rearview camera. LT gains standard remote engine start. Impala is a large front-wheel-drive car. The base engine is a 196-horsepower 2.5-liter 4-cylinder and a 305-hp 3.6-liter V6 is available. Available features include forward-collision warning, rear-cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and heated/ventilated front seats. Both engines are paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. 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 a Premier.
