Expert Quotes:

a refreshingly intuitive 8-inch Chevrolet myLink screen (standard on all but the base LS), which supports iPad-like clicking, swiping, and dragging, and displays 3-D images of buildings in urban centers when equipped with navigation.

One really cool thing about the Impala's MyLink is that you can build a comprehensive favorites list.

Voice and gesture recognition looks great in commercials, but it doesn’t really matter all that much in the real world.

The 2014 Chevy Impala splits itself into three trim levels--LS, LT, and LTZ. On the V-6 models, only the LT and LTZ trims are available.

Every Impala comes with power windows, locks, and mirrors; cruise control; air conditioning; and 18-inch wheels. Options are few on the $27,535 Impala LS: just rear parking sensors, a cargo net, and rear headrests.

The $29,785 Impala LT adds a combination of cloth and vinyl upholstery; a fully powered driver seat and a passenger seat with power height (but manual fore-aft) adjustment; and an AM/FM/XM/CD player with hidden storage behind the LCD audio screen. Major options include 19-inch wheels; microfiber/vinyl seats; a power passenger seat; rear parking sensors and a rearview camera; pushbutton start; Bose audio with 11 speakers; remote start; a sunroof; and navigation.

The LT and LTZ come standard with MyLink, Chevy's infotainment controller, essentially a version of the Cadillac CUE system without the haptic feedback. The touchscreen's brightly colored icons are gateways to a range of connectivity and streaming features that might be out of the Impala's demographic ballpark. Voice-to-text is one of the least-used capabilities, Chevy tells us--but there's a valet mode that locks the storage bin behind the touchscreen for safe phone storage, while it also locks out contact and navigation information from prying eyes parking your car. MyLink has more than 60 slots for favorites, so you can program one-touch access to anything from a radio station to a destination, and it can connect to up to 10 different devices via Bluetooth while streaming audio.

At the top of the Impala range, the $34,555 LTZ brings with it standard 19-inch wheels; leather seats; a power passenger seat; ambient lighting; parking sensors and a rearview camera; pushbutton start; a sunroof; and a bundle of safety features optional on the LT, including forward-collision warning, blind-spot monitors, and a lane-departure warning system. With all the options--power tilt/telescoping steering; navigation; 20-inch wheels; Bose audio; adaptive cruise control; and ventilated seats--an Impala LTZ can cost more than $41,000, though Chevy expects a $32,000 LT with the V-6 engine to be its most popular model.

Conclusion

Infotainment gets brightly colored in Chevy's MyLink system--plus there's a secret chamber behind its slide-up screen.

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.
