2014 Chevrolet Impala Video Transcript
Automotive writers agree that the 2014 Chevrolet Impala has an upscale interior. But what do they think about its power and handling? Hi! I am Jim Sharifi, Senior Editor with US News Best Cars. In this video we will take a closer look at the Impala's performance.
The Chevy Impala comes with front-wheel drive. A 196 horsepower 2.5L 4-cylinder engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission, that combination delivers an EPA estimated 21 miles per gallon in the city and 31 on the highway. The available eAssist powertrain with a 4-cylinder engine and an electric motor does better with 25 miles per gallon in city and 35 miles per gallon on the highway. The top engine option is a 3.6L V-6 with 305 horsepower which drops those numbers to 19 and 29.
Reviewers who have driven the V-6 powered Impala say it accelerates smoothly and confidently and that it also offers good passing power on the highway. The automatic transmission wins points for its quick down shifts when more power is needed. And some say that engine noises are especially muted in the cabin even under hard acceleration. While test drivers don't consider the Impala Sports Sedan, they reported handles better than its large size would suggest. Experts write that composed handling and accurate steering make it an easy car to drive. The Chevy Impala also gets good marks for a ride that's firm yet comfortable and for its strong brakes.
