2013 Chevrolet Impala
The Chevrolet Impala has been a favorite since the 1960s. Listed as one of the top ten selling cars last year, the Chevy Impala owes its charm to its strong performance and commanding exterior. What makes it an even more appealing choice if its value for money, as it is easily one of the top affordable large cars.
The Chevy Impala stays loyal to its form: a comfortable and large American car that combines the traditional auto concept with a touch of modern design.
The interior of the Impala doesn’t disappoint. Inside is a spacious cabin, with seating that’s almost as comfortable as seating in a soft luxury sofa; Impala’s luxury seating is a reminder of how car seats used to be made.
Going further, some of the Impala’s unique attributes are the optional front bench seat, which allows seating for as many as six people, and trunk space that easily trumps most large cars. The rear seats can also be flipped up, revealing a massive trunk that can carry long and large objects. These interior features are definitely useful at a time when most large cars forget that interior space is one of their key selling points. There’s a reason why the Impala is considered a classic: its exterior shies away from gimmicks and remains true to its core. Described as conservative and straightforward, the Impala is characterized by flat body panels, linear lines, and a high roofline.
With an impressive fuel economy rating of 30-mpg on the highway, 18 mpg in the city in this 3.6-liter V6 engine, there’s little room for doubt that the 2013 Impala is a strong contender in its class. Its 303-horsepower, 262 lb-feet torque V6 engine, which is expensively and deftly engineered, is the same hardware found in the Cadillac. A test drive will conclusively show that the Impala has improved both in responsiveness and performance. It is much tighter, seamless, and smooth; a striking improvement that ought to impress even long-time fans of the Impala line. The 2013 Impala is offered in three trim levels: the LS, LT, and LTZ sedan options.
The 2013 Impala model comes with Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, satellite radio, keyless entry, trip computer and steering wheel controls. Upgrades include Bose sound, dual-zone climate control, and leather seats. The Bose sound system is a feature not usually offered in most sedans but is generously available in the LT and LTZ models. There is, however, no iPod interface or USB ports.
The 2013 Impala comes with the safety features that have propelled Chevrolet as a leader in driver safety. The OnStar system is packed with stolen vehicle assistance, and remote ignition. As for basic safety features, every unit has six airbags, antilock breaks, and a comprehensive electronic stability system.
Pricing for the 2013 Chevrolet Impala starts at $26,500 for the LS model, going up to $31,000 for the LTZ. For a large sedan, the Chevy Impala is more affordable than its rivals like the Ford Taurus and the Chrysler 300.
