The 2012 Chevrolet Impala is has a reasonably good feature set, but the lack of options and infotainment features limit this big sedan's appeal.
Most of the basic features you'd expect to find in a rather low-priced mid-size or large sedan are here, including Bluetooth, satellite radio, steering-wheel controls, a trip computer, and keyless entry--all standard in the Impala LS. This version is sold widely to fleets, so some features like a fold-down rear seat and power side mirrors are omitted to keep cost down.
Stepping up to the LT, you earn flip-and-fold rear seats, remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, 17-inch machined aluminum wheels, and a somewhat firmer Touring suspension. The LTZ is the top-of-the-line, sporty Impala, and adds a Bose sound system, W-rated tires on 18-inch wheels, fog lamps, heated mirrors, power front seats, leather upholstery, and a garage-door opener.Otherwise, the Impala is missing a lot. USB port? Not here. Navigation? No. A sunroof? No. But the Impala does have OnStar hardware and comes with a six-month subscription to basic services (you'll have to pay a monthly fee after that).
The 2012 Chevrolet Impala includes an impressive list of features, but there's a lot missing from it.
