Most comfortable car we have owned

by Larry from BONITA SPRINGS | November 03, 2019

This car far exceeded all my expectations. The Premier version has wonderful interior details; top stitching on the dashboard; lighted trim and amazing Bose sound system. Automatic start is my way to start her up!

Beauitful and comfortable

by Colleen 2081 from Milwaukee, Wi. | October 23, 2019

I have had this car since it was new. A wonderful driving experience in total comfort. The car turns heads. Mine is black tinted coat.

interior is not for old folks

by Mrs.Mack from New England | October 09, 2019

Had this as a rental for a week, would not buy one. Rides well, peppy, responsive, quiet, handles well. Interior is like sitting on the floor, difficult to see sitting so low (I am 5 ft 6) awkward to get in and out, lots of blind spots when looking left or right, not a car for us old folks, back up camera is good. My husband is a big guy and the bucket seats don't give him much shoulder room. Frame is very low to the ground, not good in the snow.

2018 Chevrolet Impala Overview


The 2018 Chevrolet Impala is a full-size family sedan that seat 5 passengers. It competes with the Ford Taurus, Chrysler 300, and Toyota Avalon. This year, it remains largely unchanged.

Three trims are available: the LS, LT, and Premier.


The Impala has conventional styling for a family sedan. The front grille and headlights align to create a long, singular body line that stretches across the Impala. Other muscular lines can be found at the lower half of the doors and rear fenders. Standard features include power side mirrors and 18-inch wheels. A power moonroof, HID headlights, LED daytime running lamps, heated side mirrors, a rear spoiler, a dual-pipe exhaust system, and larger 19-, and 20-inch aluminum wheels are available as well.

Powering the Impala is a standard 197-hp, 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. A more powerful 305-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 is available as well. Fuel economy for the 4-cylinder model is an EPA-estimated 22/30 mpg city/highway. It lowers to a 19/28 mpg rating for the V-6 model.

Inside, the Impala has a standard cloth interior with front bucket seats and a 40/20/40 split-folding rear seat. The center stack features a standard Chevrolet MyLink multimedia system with an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, voice recognition, and OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi hotspot. It can be upgraded with an integrated navigation system and a Bose premium audio system.
