Car and Driver says that the 2016 Chevrolet Impala is “the first one that could truly be called dashing since the 1960 model.” We’d have to agree for the most part, as the previous Impalas offer very little to someone who is looking for a ‘hot’ ride. One thing’s for sure, the tenth-generation Impala has everyone staring, including us.
The new Impala is so stylish that Car and Driver decided to include it in a list of the ten best-looking cars under $35K. Other vehicles to make the list included the likes of the Audi A3, Ford Mustang, and the Mercedes-Benz CLA-class. However, the Impala was just one of three full-sized sedans in the segment, making it one of the few good-looking vehicles in its class that are more easily affordable.
The Midnight Edition would be our preferred ‘model of choice,’ because it doesn’t get any cleaner than the all-black finish. But even the base Impala is attractive, and with a starting price of $28K the sleek sedan offers a lot for relatively a little. If we bring the 2016 Camaro and 2016 Malibu into the picture, one could make the argument that Chevrolet is in first place when it comes to the latest redesigns. Well, at least in our opinion.
