What Features Make the 2014 Chevrolet Impala Stand Out from the Crowd?
The 2014 Chevrolet Impala is one of the best in class when it comes to spacious sedans. Here are some of the features that make this model stand out from the crowd.
Comfort and Affordable Luxury
It almost seems impossible to get all you want out of a car without having to blow your family budget. But with the 2014 Chevrolet Impala, luxury is made affordable. The large trunk and high-quality cabin of this five-seater make it perfect for the everyday commute or weekend road trips. Cloth seats, power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a six-speaker audio system are some of the standard features that make this car score high points in comfort and technology.
Performance and Fuel Economy
Overall, the 2014 Chevrolet Impala is a reliable vehicle whatever the powertrain you choose. With three options available, drivers who want the best mileage should look into the eAssist powertrain that combines a four-cylinder engine with a 182 horsepower electric motor that averages between 18-24 mpg in the city and 28-35 in the highway. The other two powertrains vary between 196 and 305 horsepower, with the latter being faster but less fuel efficient than the former”
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2014 Chevrolet Impala’s safety features a five out of five star rating. Standard safety features include six airbags (driver, passenger, front and rear head, and front and rear side), child safety locks, electronic stability control, and traction control. That means you don’t have to upgrade to another trim just to get fundamental safety features. If you do want high-end features, like rearview camera and lane departure warning, take a look at the LTZ trim.
Looking at Some of The Trims’ Features
The 2014 Chevrolet Impala is available in three trims: LS, LT, and LTZ. For car buyers happy with a safe and functional car, the LS trim has all the features you’ll need, including the standard safety ones that make this vehicle stand out. The LT trim comes with five packages available so you can customize your car to your needs, whether it’s extra safety features, premium audio, or premium seating.
The LTZ trim offers the best value for most buyers, where most high-tech features come standard. The Comfort and Convenience Package has exciting features like Coming Home Device and sunroof.
How Does This Model Rank?
The 2014 Chevrolet Impala scored high on a number of expert lists. It was number one in 2014 Best Large Car for the Money and Best Large Car for Families. It ranked in number five in the 2014 Affordable Large Cars list and number six in the Used Large Cars $15K to $20K list. Of course, you have the last say and there’s no better time to make your final decision than taking this vehicle on a test drive.
This is the right car for families looking for a safe vehicle at the best price without compromising on comfort, top-notch technology, and a little bit of affordable luxury.
