The list of optional high-tech gadgets on the 2009 Chevrolet Impala are minimal, but the car has an adequate assortment of standard equipment.

Four Impala trim levels are offered: LS, LT, LTZ, and SS.

According to Edmunds, the Impala comes in four trim levels (LS, LT, LTZ, and SS) and has power features, including air conditioning, tilt steering, a power driver seat, a CD player with an MP3-player input, and keyless entry. LT versions get remote start and dual-zone climate control, while the LTZ adds a tauter suspension, leather bucket seats, and a Bose audio system. The SS edition picks up a spoiler and special 18-inch wheels.

For those Impala Chevrolet passengers wishing to work on a laptop during extended road trips, Car and Driver reports that one will find "three power points" in the Impala Chevrolet cabin; "two are tucked out of sight at the base of the center stack in the bottom of a deep storage tray, and a third is in the center console, so you can power the cell-phone charger, the radar detector, and the iPod." Kelley Blue Book points out "clever features, such as the auxiliary audio input jack, go a long way toward satisfying the kids on long trips."

Unavailable on the Impala are a DVD- or hard-drive-based navigation system, a panoramic sunroof, all-wheel drive, and some other features found in the class leaders. Available options include anti-lock brakes for the base car, satellite radio, leather seats, a CD changer, and a sunroof.  "A new luxury package on 1LT trims combines popular options into one package," according to; these include "leather-trimmed interior, antilock brakes, traction control, a rear spoiler and GM's OnStar communication system with Turn-By-Turn navigation."

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
