The newly re-designed Impala has made a lot leaps this year, all while sticking with it's old roots of what made it famous when it first came out back in 1958. A stylish vehicle with a respectable powerful motor and the comfort and room on the inside to fit the whole family.
But what really sets the 2014 Impala apart from other American cars this year is; it is the first American-branded car in at least 20 years to be rated the top new sedan by Consumer Reports magazine.
Consumer Reports gave the Impala a rating of 95 which is the highest of all of the sedans. This is impressive considering the only two other cars that were rated higher were a BMW 135i coupe and a Model S hatchback, neither of which are 4 door sedans.
Along with the Consumer Reports magazine victory, the full-size, five-passenger Impala also received the top, overall,
five-out-of-five-stars rating from the Federal Government for over all occupant protection in safety crash testing.
These accomplishments are a far cry from last years ratings which only managed a 4 of 5 star rating from Federal Government in safety crash testing and a low 63 rating from Consumers Reports.
The only one downfall to this new Impala is the price is a little bit up from last years Impala. But considering it's new accomplishment and more horsepower and all the extra goodies it comes with, who's to say it's a downfall. For more info on the 2014 Impala.
