The Chevrolet Impala is a big, roomy sedan. While classified as a mid-size sedan, it’s large for that class. Close in size to the Toyota Avalon, it competes with mid-size and full-size cars. Among them: the Ford Taurus, Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, and Nissan Altima.
For 2009 the Impala gains significant safety enhancements: thorax side-impact airbags, seatbelt pretensioners for front-seat lap belts and anti-lock brakes with traction control are now standard on all models. Bluetooth is available, the Impala SS gets 18-inch flangeless alloy wheels and there are three new exterior colors.
We find the Impala’s neat, clean lines pleasing to the eye. Its styling looks contemporary, handsome, and clean. Other people must think so as well, as the Impala is among the top-10 best-selling cars in the U.S.
The 1LT upgrades to 16-inch aluminum wheels and more interior conveniences. Options include leather upholstery ($1,125) on bench or bucket seats, eight-speaker Bose audio system ($495), sunroof ($900), universal garage door opener ($100), and rear spoiler ($275).
