2014 Chevrolet Impala

There is a reason that the Chevrolet Impala has been one of the most popular sedans in the country over the last few decades. It offers tasteful looks, a roomy interior, lots of comfort features, and an engine that provides a blend of power and efficiency. It is not a revolutionary vehicle, it is just a smart one built with the needs of today’s drivers in mind. The 2014 Chevrolet Impala takes this principle and carries it even further, and the results have critics raving. Check out this quick overview to find out what critics are liking most.

Car and Driver

The critics at Car and Driver point out that the Impala has not undergone a major overhaul in almost a decade, which makes the release of the 2014 model something of an event. They praised Chevy for keeping what works, and completely reimagining what didn’t. In their review they wrote “The new Impala’s mission is to rouse the snoozing large-car segment with its combination of envy-me exterior styling, modern underpinnings, and contemporary furnishings while honoring Chevy’s traditional value equation.”


The overwhelming positive review delivered by Edmunds found a lot to like with this model, but they singled out the engine for special praise. They wrote that “Even with four adults onboard, the 3.6-liter had no problem keeping up on winding back roads, and it delivered respectable passing power when asked.”

Motor Trend

The critics at Motor Trend couldn’t help comparing the new Impala to the Ford Taurus, a similar model. In important ways, they found the Impala provided the more appealing ride. In their review they commented that “Compared with the Taurus, the Impala is quieter overall. The Chevy’s electronic power steering is lighter and more direct, with none of the Ford’s slight initial understeer at turn-in. The light steering is appropriate for a big family car, and provided good feedback from road imperfections.”
