If you are in pursuit of the cushy, elegantly and multi-feature four door, the 2015 Chevrolet Impala offers a limo-sized indoor, subtle entertainment system and sumptuous styling. Also distinct in the Impala is the offer of dual segment unique V4 powertrains that comes with an eAssist mild-system if you want lower MSRP or MPGs while a smooth and potent V6 is also provided. The Impala boasts a yawning cabin and its interior ensconced with multifarious equipment. Like autos in its exclusive niche, the Chevrolet comes with cavernous passenger room, top grade materials, perforated leatherette padding, suede micro-fiber, contrast interweaving and supple-touch materials that depict an upscale cabin.

Available Powertrains and Handling Capacity

The Impala comes incorporates a V4 or the eAssist mild-hybrid which are an addition to the six-cylinder. Power is transmitted to frontal wheels via a standard 6-speed automated transmission. Impala entry-level is available as a directly-injected 2.5-L that churns out 195 ponies and 187 pounds-feet of twist while it features an automated noise cancellation mechanism to militate against cabin noise. Conversely, the eAssist unit combines the 2.4-L V4 boasting an electric motor with maximum of 182 horsepower. The echelon-topping unit I a 3.6-L V6 cranks out 305 ponies and 264 pounds-feet of torque.  

Despite lacking the efficient HiPerfront strut suspension in conjunction with the adaptive damping systems ubiquitous in costly full-sized GM sedans, the engineers of the Impala succeeded in counterbalancing ride comfy and finely-controlled body movements.

Impalas with the exception of the base version are equipped with Chevrolet MyLink entertainment system, controlling the audio system and equipped navigation system while offering accessibility to Smartphone run apps. There are center console-mounted controls and steering wheel knobs that for running MyLink while there is also a voice command system.
