What’s new

  • The Impala carries over unchanged for 2019
  • Part of the 10th Impala generation introduced for 2014

Pros

  • Smooth, quiet ride
  • Spacious rear seat and trunk
  • Sleek cabin with lots of technology upgrades
  • Capable optional V6

Cons

  • Advanced collision prevention tech restricted to top trim level
  • Thick roof pillars hamper visibility
  • Some interior surfaces feel cheap
  • Underwhelming performance and fuel economy from standard four-cylinder


Which Impala does Edmunds recommend

We recommend opting for the V6 since it dramatically improves the driving experience. While the LS is a bargain in this segment, we'd step up to the LT for its added features and access to more options. Specifically — considering the Impala's visibility issues — we'd add the Driver Confidence package for its parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

Edmunds' Expert Review

overall rating

3.5 / 5

Highlights of the 2019 Chevrolet Impala include its smooth ride, roomy interior with lots of space for rear-seat passengers, and one of the most massive trunks available in any sedan. Chevy has also updated the latest Impala generation over its life with newer infotainment and connectivity features. What the Impala has in spades, though, is that smooth large-car feeling on the road.

There aren't a ton of choices for affordable full-size sedans these days, but the king of this class is the Toyota Avalon, which was fully redesigned for 2019. Buyers who are looking to get the most features for their money might want to check out the Kia Cadenza. The Buick LaCrosse also offers a more luxurious and recently redesigned take on the full-size segment. Perhaps the more significant issue is that midsize sedans, such as the excellent new Honda Accord, rival the Impala for space and refinement at a much lower starting price.

trim levels & features

The 2019 Chevrolet Impala is a four-door, five-passenger sedan that's available in three trim levels. Thanks to equipment upgrades last year, the base LS trim is more than just bare-bones transportation. Moving up to the LT trim gets you upgraded interior materials and access to several option packages. The range-topping Premier trim offers an extensive and upscale list of standard features.

Two engines are available. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder (197 horsepower, 191 pound-feet of torque) is standard on the LS and LT trim levels, while a 3.6-liter six-cylinder (305 hp, 264 lb-ft of torque) is standard for the Premier and optional in the others. Both engines use a six-speed automatic transmission and are only available with front-wheel drive.

The LS trim starts with a good selection of standard features. You get 18-inch steel wheels, sound-insulating laminated windows, automatic headlights, cruise control, keyless entry and ignition, a rearview camera, air conditioning, an eight-way power driver's seat, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, 60/40-split folding rear seats, OnStar (includes 4G LTE and Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity), a six-speaker audio system, satellite radio, and Chevy's MyLink infotainment system that includes an 8-inch touchscreen interface, two USB ports, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Moving up to the LT adds 18-inch alloy wheels, remote engine start, heated mirrors, dual-zone climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, rear air vents, extra headrest adjustments, and a few other small interior trim upgrades.

The Impala LT also offers many upgrade packages. The Driver Confidence package includes blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and rear parking sensors. The LT Entertainment package pads on navigation, an 11-speaker Bose stereo system, a CD player, ambient interior lighting and a 120-volt outlet. Want a sunroof and a rear spoiler? Order the Sunroof and Spoiler package.

There's also the LT Convenience package, which includes heated front seats and a heated steering wheel as well as an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The Convenience package can be upgraded with the LT Leather package, which adds leather upholstery and a power-adjustable front passenger seat.

The top-trim Impala Premier gets 19-inch wheels, xenon headlights, heated power seats and leather upholstery, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and some unique exterior accents. It also includes the contents of the LT's Driver Confidence, Entertainment, and Sunroof and Spoiler packages.

Packages for the Premier trim include the Premier Confidence package, which adds adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, lane departure warning and 20-inch wheels. The Premier Convenience package adds ventilated front seats, a heated and power-adjustable steering wheel, driver memory settings, and auto-dimming rearview and driver-side mirrors.

Both the LT and Premier trims also have access to the Midnight Edition Appearance package, which adds black-painted 19-inch wheels, replaces the chrome exterior trim with black-painted pieces, and includes special black interior trim pieces. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Midnight Edition Impalas are only available in black.

trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Chevrolet Impala LTZ (3.6L V6 | 6-speed automatic | FWD).

NOTE: Since this test was conducted in 2014, the current Impala has received some revisions, including an overhaul of the infotainment system, the addition of more standard features, and changes to option packages. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year's Impala, however.

driving

3
The 305-hp V6 in the Impala makes more power than competitors, but instrumented acceleration is average. Its 3,881-pound weight (a few hundred pounds more than the Avalon) may be to blame. Still, the Impala's V6 is smooth, strong and plenty capable.

acceleration

3.5
Shifts are smooth and quick. The Impala gets up to highway speeds quickly and passes with confidence. Still, our measured 0-60 mph time of 6.7 seconds is merely average for the class. The four-cylinder is noticeably slower.

braking

3
The pedal feel is slightly soft, but it's easy enough to modulate around town. A panic stop from 60 mph takes 120 feet, which is average for this class of vehicle.

steering

3
The steering effort and feedback are light but precise and trustworthy. But it's slightly sensitive around the center, so the driver still has to stay alert to prevent lane-wandering.

handling

3
Obedient but not entertaining. Around turns, the Impala will prove capable and confident enough for the majority of drivers.

drivability

3.5
Well-mannered and confidence-inspiring during day-to-day driving, the Impala is a willing and accommodating commuting partner. Light steering makes parking easy.

comfort

3.5
The Impala provides a pleasantly peaceful cabin that emphasizes comfort over performance. There's ample interior space. After hours of driving, we emerged no worse for the wear. Skipping the optional 20-inch wheels may further improve the ride.

seat comfort

4
The adequately padded front seats offer eight-way power adjustments. Side bolstering is minimal, and the optional ventilation is weak. The adult-friendly rear seats are only bested by those in the Avalon for legroom in the class.

ride comfort

4.5
The suspension smooths out rough surfaces and provides a terrific balance of comfort and composure. The Impala is also less floaty than some competitors.

noise & vibration

4.5
Wind and road noise is barely detectable over a variety of surfaces and speeds. The cabin's creak-free isolation approaches luxury-sedan levels.

interior

3
The Impala is competitive with other large sedans. The tasteful interior design is appealing, though there are still some disappointing plastics, particularly below the center stack.

ease of use

The majority of primary and secondary controls are well-placed and clearly labeled, but the touchscreen is a bit of a reach and at an upward angle.

getting in/getting out

4
The elevated seat height makes getting in and out easy, as does the tall door opening. There's no stooping required. The same holds true for the rear seats.

roominess

4.5
The Impala's spaciousness compares favorably with competitors, with plenty of headroom and legroom. The average-size adult will even be comfortable in the rear seat for all-day road trips.

visibility

2.5
The thick front roof pillars hamper visibility through turns, and the high rear trunklid requires reliance on the backup camera. The gauges and displays are placed well within sightlines.

quality

3
Flimsy plastic panels on the center console contribute to a lower-quality environment than those of competitors. But the MyLink system's menus are intuitive and straightforward.

utility

With the Taurus dead, the Impala now boasts the biggest trunk in the segment, positively huge at 18.8 cubic feet. Inside the cabin, bins are adequate and the behind-touchscreen storage is unique. Rear LATCH anchors are easy to find, and there's plenty of room, even for rear-facing car seats.

technology

The current incarnation of Chevy's MyLink system is easy to use and offers lots of connectivity features, such as standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Accident avoidance tech is available, but only on the highest trim level — they're standard on every Avalon.

Chevrolet Impala vs. the competition

Chevrolet Impala vs. Honda Accord

The Honda Accord might be a midsize sedan, but it claims slightly more rear-seat legroom than the Impala, more active safety features and a lower starting price. This latest generation is bigger and more refined than ever, and it's one of our favorite sedans. That said, the Impala has a more traditional large-car feel on the road, which is sure to appeal to some buyers.

Chevrolet Impala vs. Chevrolet Malibu

The Chevrolet Malibu is technically the Impala's little brother, although it offers almost as much passenger space. The midsize Malibu also benefits from a more recent redesign and provides a more engaging driving experience than the big Impala. There's even a hybrid version that returns an excellent 45 mpg combined.

Chevrolet Impala vs. Toyota Avalon

With its recent ground-up redesign, the Avalon has cemented itself as a top large-sedan pick. Loaded with all the latest technology, lots of room and much-improved driving dynamics, the Avalon is a must-look if you're in the market for a mainstream full-size sedan.

More about the 2019 Chevrolet Impala

The 2019 Chevrolet Impala may wear a storied name, but this restrained and comfortable sedan is very different from the coupe of 60 years ago. The Impala of today is a handsome sedan that boasts an enormous trunk, exceptional interior room, and near-luxury ride quality and noise isolation. Of course, the other thing that's come a long way since 1958 is technology, and the 2019 Impala has plenty. For starters, the Impala's standard equipment includes a rearview camera and Chevy's friendly MyLink system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

The 2019 Impala's base LS trim also starts with sound-insulating laminated windows, automatic headlights, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and keyless entry with push-button start. It makes for an appealing bargain proposition with the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, but it lacks access to option packages.

Move up to the LT, and Chevrolet will offer you all sorts of option packages beyond the standard interior trim upgrades and dual-zone climate control. Heated leather seats, a Bose audio system and a sunroof are all available. You can also add blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

At the top of the range is the Impala Premier, which comes with almost all of the LT's optional equipment. The Premier can be upgraded even further with luxuries such as ventilated front seats and conveniences including adaptive cruise control. Unfortunately, it's the only trim that offers forward collision warning and lane keeping assistance — technologies that are more readily available on competitors (and sometimes standard).

Two engines are offered. The first is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder (197 horsepower, 191 pound-feet of torque), which is standard on the LS and LT trim levels. A 3.6-liter six-cylinder (305 hp, 264 lb-ft of torque) is standard equipment for the Premier and optional for the LS and the LT. In either case, Chevy equips the Impala with a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.

There's a lot to like about the Chevrolet Impala. Not every car can effortlessly eat up the miles all day long and carry five people and all their luggage to boot.
