2014 Chevy Impala @districtdrive {Car Review}

Disclosure:  I received this car for one week to review in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.

So for one week I got to drive around in a 2014 Chevy Impala and wow was it nice.  First off it is a full-size sedan that seats five people, yes I was able to fit my family of five in there.  I had one car seat and two booster seats in the back seat, although for full-time use it would be tight for us.

Some features I loved:

  • Lots of legroom – especially in the back seat
  • Sleek design
  • Auto headlights, yes I love when I don’t have to remember to turn them on/off
  • Ten standard air bags, including driver and front passenger knee air bags – seriously the car would be like a giant cushion if all the air bags went off!
  • Touch screen menu/navigation with Chevrolet MyLink (I didn’t use MyLink but it sounds cool!)
  • 6 months of OnStar included (I didn’t use this but I love that you get 6 months to try it out!)
  • Forward Collision and Rear Cross Traffic Alert – alerts you if someone is too close to you in the front or side
  • Lane Departure Warning – this alerted me if I was veering out of my lane (you can of course turn this off)
  • Rear vision camera
  • Power sunroof with second row skylight
  • EZ Key Passive Entry System
  • Heated steering wheel in addition to heated seats – especially nice in the cold Chicago weather
  • Handsfree calling
  • 2 Power outlets (12 volt)
  • Huge trunk!

That little button on handle is how you unlock the car if you don’t want to use the keys!

I also made a quick YouTube video of the car, sorry its not the best I was holding the camera as I was taking the video:

Overall, I found the 2014 Chevy Impala to be a smooth ride that I will miss.  My husband actually liked the car so much, he has added the Impala to his future new car possibilities.  I drove the car both short distances around my town and a little farther, no complaints here.  I barely used half a tank of gas all week, so I guess the gas mileage is decent at its average of 22 MPG.  This car had some features I had never seen before such as the heated steering wheel, lane departure warning, alerts and so many air bags, and I definitely see the Chevy Impala making a comeback.  I honestly think of an Impala as a big car that older people drive, not senior citizens but rather the generation of people in their 50s.  This is a car younger generations will love and the size didn’t see that boat-ish inside to me!  For a family of four to a single person, this is a great car for anyone really.  The price of around $26,000+ (depending on features of course) is a little high for a sedan for me, but it does scream “safety” and “luxury” inside.

VISIT:  Check out the 2014 Chevy Impala online or look for it at your nearest Chevy dealership.

  1. That looks like one NICE car! While it’s totally and completely out of my price range currently, it’s definitely something I wouldn’t mind considering if I had the money to spend :)
