A larger vehicle, the Impala should score well in crash tests, but unfortunately it doesn’t stand out for crash-test protection.
It does well with five-star frontal ratings and a mix of four- and five-star ratings in side protection from the federal government, but only an "acceptable" frontal rating, a "good" side-impact rating, and a "marginal" rear-impact rating in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) round of testing.
Standard safety features on the 2010 Chevrolet Impala include anti-lock brakes, stability control, and side curtain airbags, all for an affordable price. The OnStar emergency communications system is also standard.
When it comes to safety, the 2010 Chevrolet Impala lags in its class, with only mediocre crash-test results to show.
