The 2018 Chevy Impala

This large sedan is part of the Impala's fourth generation which received its last redesign in 2014. The 2018 Chevy Impala is an outstanding vehicle that drives at affordable prices. This is thanks to its competitive pricing, massive dealer network as well as its excellent resale and reliability ratings. The Impala holds its own in the large-sedan market where there are other notable opponents like the Dodge Charger and the Toyota Avalon. It comes with a choice of a potent 6-cylinder or an economical 4-cylinder engine, plenty of features and aggressive styling. This is the longest running sedan the Chevy's lineup.


Is this a good car?

The 2018 Chevy Impala is a good car, probably as good as a preacher and his sermon. When compared to other cars of its class, the Impala can brag of having a healthy balance of value and quality. If it was a meal, then every doctor would recommend it because it is like a balanced diet. There is plenty of room in the first and second-row seats. It beats most of its classmates by having a very large trunk. The V6 option offers power for days while the base engine boasts of being fuel efficient. And did we mention that the tech 'stuff' on this vehicle is quite easy to use?

All models now come with new standard features that include keyless entry and start as well as a rearview camera. The Premiere trim comes with additions like wireless phone charging, Bose audio, and navigation. The LS brings in a rear backup camera, fresh leatherette and cloth seats, keyless access with push-button start, 8-inch touchscreen and a MyLink radio. The LT boasts of a remote vehicle start.


What are the advantages and disadvantages of the Impala?

There is no rose without a thorn. There are plenty of things we love about this sedan, but there are others that we just wish we could forget. The Impala has plenty of pros that include: an intuitive infotainment system, strong V6 engine, good gas mileage, large trunk, spacious interior, sharp exterior and a quality ride. We don't like the fact that it has an underpowered base engine, very noisy 20-inch optional tires, a very busy cabin and it lacks a hybrid powertrain.
