The guide found much to like in the Impala’s well-aged design with intuitive cockpit controls inside. Trimmings and materials are high-quality, per the publication, and its driving dynamics continue to present themselves as akin to a luxury vehicle.
The recognition focuses on the optional 3.6-liter V6 engine, which the guide found smooth and abundant with power, and the Impala’s poised ride and commendable handling were stars during a slew of tests.
Kelley Blue Book also awarded the Impala its “Best Buy” award for large cars last year after noting similar positive attributes. The publication also said the value factor is very strong. Every Impala comes with keyless entry and push-button start, there’s an eight-inch touchscreen and a handy rearview camera is standard.
