2017 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 2017 Chevrolet Impala changes the name of its topline LTZ trim to Premier. Otherwise, Impala is essentially unchanged. 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.
