Customers in Korea can choose from a 2.5L SIDI L4 or a 3.6L SIDI V6 powerplant, just like here. In addition, rain-sensing wipers, power folding side mirrors, standard navigation, unique antenna, a 220v outlet, rear controls and heated seats, unique gauge cluster, locking fuel cap, an electronic toll collecting system are all available on the export model.
Customers will also be happy to know the Korea-bound 2016 Impala will feature Chevrolet’s latest phone connectivity system, Apple CarPlay, as standard.
“We are thrilled to have the iconic flagship sedan complete Chevrolet’s passenger car portfolio in Korea,” said Sergio Rocha, president and CEO of GM Korea. “We are confident that its bold styling, comfort, safety, powerful performance and technology will make it a leader in the highly competitive upper-medium sedan segment.”
