didn't expect to find an MP3 input jack in the Impala
Kelley Blue Book

The 2010 Chevrolet Impala range starts with the base LS, which gets keyless entry, cruise control, air conditioning, and a CD sound system, as well as Bluetooth connectivity, which is offered as standard across the range. The LT model is next up and adds more popular comfort and convenience equipment, while the range-topping LTZ comes with many of those same features as the LT, plus dual-zone climate control, an eight-speaker Bose stereo, and an alarm system.

Standard equipment is acceptable, but its list of optional high-tech gadgets is lacking. For the latest model year, only three Impala trim levels are offered: LS, LT, and LTZ. The sporty SS model is no longer offered.

Edmunds reports that the Impala has plenty of power features, including air conditioning, tilt steering, a power driver’s 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 an eight-speaker Bose audio system.

Car and Driver points out that for those Impala passengers wishing to work on a laptop during extended road trips, Chevrolet offers "three power points" in the vehicle’s 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. This allows you to power the cell-phone charger, the radar detector, and the iPod." Kelley Blue Book is a fan of the "clever features, such as the auxiliary audio input jack,” and remarks that it goes a long way toward satisfying the kids on long trips.

Unavailable on the Impala are features such as a DVD- or hard-drive-based navigation system, a panoramic sunroof, all-wheel drive, and some other features found in the class leaders.

Conclusion

The 2010 Chevrolet Impala, while providing the basics, lags behind the competitors in terms of features.

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.
