The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Sporty SS aside, the 2008 Chevrolet Impala is a practical—but not exciting—choice if you’re on a tight budget and need a sedan with a lot of space. If you don't mind driving a big car with derivative looks, the 2008 Kia Amanti is a great choice.
