Thos car rides very comfortably . The gas is economically good and very good to transport things and others. I give it a 5 star rating in my book

Very good car but a few problems too

by Dave Jablonsky from Farr West, UT | May 31, 2020

Car is great on a road trip. I got the car as a loaner for a week while mine was having some minor damage repaired (fender bender, other guy at fault). I loved driving the car and really recommend it but there were a few things that were goofy and annoying: 1) No backup camera on a 2018 vehicle. That's not even legal. xxx, Chevy? Rear view is pretty poor on this car, that's why a backup camera is essential and that's where this car failed hard. There is no excuse. 2) No USB ports. That is the height of stupidity considering my 2013 RAV4 has one. I plug a thumb drive in with my entire music collection. I consider that a necessity. Again, xxx, Chevy? Overall, car rides very decent, surprisingly good gas mileage. But if you're going to buy one, I'd press them on features. The lack of USB ports and no backup camera is appalling. I hope the newer years have them.

Smooth and Confident

I really love this car! Its big, smooth, has great styling and lots of tech. The V6 has plenty enough power to move this beast quickly. AND this car gets great gas mileage. Would very much recommend!!!

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.

Under the Hood
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. Standard features include power windows/locks, power front seats, a memory seat, air conditioning, cruise control, and remote keyless entry. Leather upholstery, an automatic dimming rearview mirror, dual-zone automatic climate control, an automatic tilt/telescoping steering wheel, power/heated front seats, ventilated front seats, remote vehicle start, and push-button start are also available.

The Impala earned a full 5-star overall crash test safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Standard features include an advanced air bag system, antilock brakes, an electronic stability system, and a tire pressure monitoring system. OnStar connected services for emergencies, security, and diagnostics purposes (subscription required) are available. Other optional features include a backup camera, a blindspot monitoring system, rear cross-traffic alert, rear park assist, lane departure warning, and forward collision alert.
