What You Will Like

The Chevrolet Impala is a large sedan competing in the near-luxury segment. Starting at under $28,000, the Impala undercuts the price of many entry-level luxury cars while still offering plenty of luxury features. The Impala also includes substantially more room than many buyers might be expecting, especially considering a price point like that of smaller, midsized cars. A major emphasis has been placed on build quality and interior refinement, improving comfort while reducing noise vibration and harshness.

Introduction

With a history dating back to 1958, Chevrolet’s largest sedan continues into the 2017 model year with only a few changes. A V6 engine is now available in the base model, while the 2017 Impala LT can have leather seats. 2017 Chevrolet Impala Premier and LT trim levels gain Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality.

When Chevrolet redesigned its Impala for 2014, it turned from dullness into one of GM’s best full-size, front-drive sedans, adopting just the right amount of muscularity and clean, chiseled lines. Not only does it look great, but today’s Impala is comfortable, thrifty, and engaging when underway, traits largely absent from its predecessor.

Base Impalas hold a 196-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. A 3.6-liter V6 that makes 305 horsepower is optional. Both team with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Impala LS, LT, and Premier trim levels are offered. Each comes with air conditioning, power features, and cruise control. Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system, standard with LT and Premium trim, uses an 8.0-inch customizable touchscreen and includes satellite radio as well as a CD player. The audio system has a hidden storage compartment behind the LCD screen. GM’s OnStar system includes a wi-fi hotspot.

Four-cylinder models include active noise cancellation, while upper trim levels are fitted with additional sound deadening and thicker glass.

Qualifying as the best-equipped Impala ever, it’s an altogether different breed of big car than GM’s full-size sedans of earlier eras. Considering its pricing structure, however, the Impala lacks some standard safety features, though 10 airbags are installed.

Standard only in Premier trim, a rearview camera is optional for the LT and isn’t even available for the fleet-duty LS version. An optional group of advanced safety features includes adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-departure warning.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gives the Impala a five-star overall crash-test rating, dropping to four stars only for rollover resistance, which is a calculated figure. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety earned Good scores in frontal- and side-impact collisions, but hasn’t undergone other testing.

Fuel economy is fairly respectable but hardly best-in-class, with the four-cylinder EPA-rated at 22/30 mpg City/Highway, or 25 mpg Combined. With the V6, gas mileage drops to 18/28 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined.

Lineup

Impala LS ($27,500) has the four-cylinder engine plus air conditioning, six-speaker audio, keyless entry, cloth upholstery, a power driver’s seat, and 18-inch steel wheels. Few options are available for the LS, which is marketed largely to fleet buyers. (Prices are MSRP and do not include the $875 destination charge.)

Impala LT ($29,765) also is four-cylinder, but adds Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment, cloth/leatherette upholstery, power lumbar for front passenger, Bluetooth phone/audio, dual-zone automatic climate control, and 18-inch alloy wheels, Options include leather seating surfaces, 19-inch wheels, and a rearview camera.

Impala Premier ($35,845) gets a gas/ethanol V6, as well as perforated leather-upholstered seats, heated front seats, a power front passenger seat, 19-inch wheels, pushbutton start, and rear parking sensors,. Safety features include forward-collision and lane-departure warnings, and blind-spot monitoring. Navigation and a sunroof are optional.

Walkaround

Sharing its foundation with the Buick LaCrosse and Cadillac XTS, Chevrolet’s Impala displays similar proportions. More restrained up front than other Chevrolet models, it benefits from crisp body lines and a sophisticated overall profile. Even the hood looks clean and invigorating, despite its array of stamped-in lines and ribs.

At the rear is an intricate intersection of surfaces, not unlike that portion of Buick’s LaCrosse. All told, it’s one of GM’s prime examples of intermingling visual details of related models, while keeping the brands clearly distinct from each other.

Interior

More spacious than such competitors as the Toyota Avalon and Hyundai Azera, the Impala has ample room for five and luggage collection, though four might be more comfortable.

Although the sweeping dual-cowl dashboard looks lovely, it suffers from a mishmash of textures, lines, and materials, creating an excessively complex appearance. Shapes are attractive, but the overall execution goes several steps too far.

Front seats provide greater support than nearly all rivals, along with head and leg space that will readily accommodate nearly any body type. The power driver’s seat has an especially broad height range.

Although the back seat is wide, its cushion is low, flat, and a tad short. Even so, headroom is on the tight side, while support could be better. Legroom is quite good throughout the cabin, nearing limousine-level in the rear. Still, some evidence of skimping in the rear compartment can be discerned.

Unlike some comparable full-size sedans, the Impala doesn’t feel as big as its dimensions suggest. Entry/exit is helped by tall, wide doors and well-shaped seats that don’t demand much knee-bending.

Trunk space is bountiful at 18.8 cubic feet, and the cockpit contains plenty of storage bins. Although the trunk is a bit shallow, its flat floor extends a considerable distance forward.

Driving Impressions

On the road, the Impala comes across as a near-athletic performer, adeptly balancing ride comfort and handling. In the substantial-size premium sedan category, the Impala ranks among the best for road manners.

Quick and accurate, belt-driven electric power steering never feels either sluggish or too heavy. Rebound springs help keep body lean under control. Overall composure and balance score ahead of several competitors, including Toyota Avalon, Hyundai Azera, and Ford Taurus.

Excellent suspension damping keeps the ride well-controlled, though it feels a bit stiffer when rolling over small bumps than when encountering large ones. Ride motions are subtly but effectively restrained.

Performance with the four-cylinder engine is just fine for commuter duty and most family tasks; but when extra energy is needed for passing or merging, reserve power is in short supply. With the optional V6 engine, acceleration ranks as vivid, actually approaching sport-sedan capability.

A V6 Impala can actually feel as if it’s wearing an SS emblem, though acceleration is swifter while rolling down the road than when starting off from a stoplight. Accelerating to 60 mph in about 6.8 seconds, the V6 version delivers the kind of smooth, strong power that inspires confidence.

Manual-shift mode may be activated via a shift-lever switch, though the tall center console makes that action rather awkward. All told, the Impala’s 6-speed doesn’t operate quite as seamlessly as some earlier GM transmissions. Reactions are quick, but lack of smooth foot action can result in imperfect responses.

Summary

Chevrolet can take pride in its current Impala, which blends attractive body lines with well-composed handling and a satisfying ride. Because the base model is short on features, an LT makes more sense for most families. Though tempting for passing power, the available V6 sucks up considerably more fuel.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
