the new car’s arresting exterior design...drew nods of approval from the locals in southernmost California
Motor Trend

The exterior of the Impala looks great, the interior is equally impressive.

the “dual cockpit” design in the front seemed out of step with current luxury design trends, which tend toward more integrated, swooping look.

After more than a decade of the producing one of the blandest designs we've seen in a very long time, the Chevrolet Impala finally wears attractive, crisp lines that have thoroughly modernized this large sedan.

Meanwhile, when last we left Chevy's hyperactive interior design squad, they'd rendered the Impala sedan in about a dozen textures and eroded inlets into the dash cowl, giving it a Nicholson-esque shoreline hairline. At some level, the ebb and flow works--your eyes move constantly around the cabin's perimeter.

They're actually looking for a place to rest, before they get tired and give up. There's nowhere near as much glitz as in the Avalon, still, but the Impala makes up for it in its sheer number of finishes and cutlines. The controls work fine, especially the big gauges and their nested LCD screen (it's an option), or the sealed switches on the steering wheel that run cruise control and media. We just believe, in our heart of hearts, there's a way to pull off this dramatic a look with less drama.

Last year's exterior overhaul works--beautifully. The new large Chevy sedan has a passing resemblance to the Malibu and Traverse at the front, but even there, the Impala gets it right where elsewhere it's gone a bit wrong. The shovel-shaped grille could wear a Honda logo. The headlamps may as well be etched with Saab logos. The hood has almost as many ribs as the old Chrysler Sebring, but comes off clean. The catapult for the shape comes at the rear door, where a complex, Mercedes CLS-like intersection of surfaces echoes the rear quarters on the Buick LaCrosse, until it darts off at the shoulder line into a new and smartly pressed crease. It's one of GM's best efforts at mingling looks while keeping the brands distinct.

Conclusion

The Chevy Impala's interior can seem a bit busy, but the exterior is one of GM's best recent efforts.

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.
