2016 Chevrolet Impala Walk Around


The Chevrolet Impala is a gorgeous car, with crisp, attractive body lines.

Viewed from the rear, the sophisticated elegance of the design strikes the eye. Even though the hood is filled with ribs and lines, it looks reasonably unadorned. At the back doors, designers created a complex convergence of surfaces, not unlike the Mercedes-Benz CLS. Impala looks like the Buick LaCrosse, adding an extra crease at the shoulder line.

Interior

Inside, the twin-cowl dashboard looks cluttered. Although less flashy than the dash in the Toyota Avalon, it’s burdened with an overdone mishmash of materials, colors and textures. Controls work nicely, though.

Tall, wide doors make entry/exit easy. Well-shaped seats are upholstered in cloth, except for leather in the LTZ. Front-seat comfort is fine, but back-seat headroom is somewhat skimpy for taller folks. Rear-seat cushions are nearly flat, if slightly short.

Leg space is good all around, and rear legroom nears limousine-like. Four adults fit neatly and comfortably inside an Impala. Visibility is good in each direction.

With 18.8 cubic feet of space, the trunk is shallow but its flat floor reaches beyond the back window. Cargo bins hold plenty. Impala LT and LTZ models have a concealed chamber behind the touchscreen. Tap a button and the screen rises.
