Consumer Reports Gives the Impala Highest Score

The Chevy Impala is one of the most recognizable brands in the General Motors and has seen more than one glory day in its time. Over the last decade or so, this famous model has been more popular as a rental vehicle or government issue car than it has been a private form of transportation. General Motors recently redesigned the Chevrolet Impala in an effort to get one back into the driveways of American motorists, and they may have just scored big with their overhaul. Consumer Reports recently released their review on the model, and it get a surprising score.

Consumer Reports (CR) offers reviews to its readers that are known as the most unbiased and reliable over many industries, include the auto industry. People trust CR because they are not connected to any major auto maker and don’t have incentive to review with bias—they have also historically been spot-on about the many models they review.

In the first instance since Consumer Reports began using a numerical rating system for passenger cars and trucks in 1992, a domestic car dominated the sedan category. Historically, cars like those coming from Honda and Toyota beat all models coming from the Detroit three, but the 2014 Chevrolet Impala has it in the bag this year—acing the road test with a score of 95 out of 100. Last year’s Impala received an embarrassing 63 out of 100. Since 1992, the top scoring sedan spot has been a Japanese model 12 times and has been a European car model nine times.

The 2014 Chevy Impala is even tied in third place for all vehicles in all categories. It is in a tie with the 2014 Infiniti G37.

The September issue of Consumer Reports shows that the 2014 Chevy Impala has characteristics of a luxury sedan but comes in at a competitive price. CR also gives its compliments to the Chevrolet MyLink system.

Consumer Reports does note that the rear visibility is limited because of its large trunk and the fuel economy isn’t the best in class.

Other trusted consumer review sources like Autoweek, The Wall Street Journal, and Car and Driver have also given their praises to the 2014 Impala.

Rounding out the top of the sedan reviews from Consumer Reports is the Chevy Impala, the Hyundai Genesis, the Toyota Avalon (#3), the V6-equipped Chrysler 300, Nissan Maxima, the Hyundai Azera, and the Lincoln MKZ with 2.0L Ecoboost motor.
