The redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Impala has transformed from a staple of airport car-rental lots into the best sedan in the United States, according to Consumer Reports. This comes as the auto magazine gave the 2014 Chevrolet Impala a road test score of 95 out of 100. This means that the 2014 Impala has tied the Infiniti G37 for third-highest rating of any current vehicle.
On the other hand, Consumer Reports gave the 2013 Impala a road test score of 63. This will be the first time since 1992 that a domestic car is the top-scoring sedan. Jake Fisher, director of Consumer Reports' automotive testing, told Automotive News, remarked that domestic carmakers “do a lot right” but there is “often something that's holding them back.
Fisher said that 2014 Impala “gets it all right, adding that the sedan is really a winner. In its September issue that will go on sale on Aug. 1, 2013, Consumer Reports remarks that the 2014 Impala "rides like a luxury sedan, with a cushy and controlled demeanor."
The magazine also remarks that the 2014 Impala is competitive “with cars that cost $20,000 more, including the Audi A6 and Lexus LS 460 L," along with the Acura RLX and Jaguar XF. The 2014 Impala also heaped praises from Consumer Report for its "solid, almost vaultlike atmosphere" and the Chevrolet MyLink control system.
The magazine, however, while rung the sedan for limited rear visibility and a fuel economy that isn't the best in its class. The 2014 Impala has been widely acclaimed by other publications like Autoweek, Car and Driver, and The Wall Street Journal.
