Five-Point Inspection: 2014 Chevrolet Impala

Five-Point Inspection: 2014 Chevrolet Impala

AutoGuide Five-Point Inspection

Sometimes, it is not hard to improve on a product. We can’t imagine there were too many developers at Microsoft who said “No sir, we can’t improve on Windows ME.” Same can be said for the designers at Chevrolet.

Things most likely not heard around the office in the past three years “Nope. No way could we possibly make the Impala more stylish.”

So, it should come as no surprise that the 2014 Chevrolet Impala is better than the king-of-the-fleet-yard 2013 model. But even with such high expectations, the 2014 Impala still exceeded them; think 2000 New England Patriots vs. 2001 New England Patriots.

Certainly you have already checked out our 2014 Chevrolet Impala Review – Video first drive, but to ensure we weren’t swayed by the picturesque location, vast vehicular improvement and general awesomeness of the warm San Diego climate, we decided to take a second drive of the 2014 Impala. General Motors invited us up for a drive and to visit to its Oshawa, Canada assembly plant where the Impala, Regal, Camaro, XTS, Equinox and old Impala (Classic) are built. Even with a constant bombardment of rain and snow, the new Impala truly is the real deal in the full-size sedan market; here are five reasons why.

    Why would you get the 4 cylinder, the mileage is too small?

    I meant mileage difference.

    Really? 2014 and GM are up to 19 or 21mpg in a floaty, slab sided barge. Review desperate to like it and even then, they can say that the handling is not as embarrassingly bad as it used to be. Styling is hopelessly dated to my eyes. Looks like a 1990’s Saab. How can GM hope to stay in business, producing mediocrity like this? Fake stitching and an aftermarket looking screen stuck on the dash board. At least it’s cheap I suppose.

    You could always buy an Audi, and have it stuck in the shop most of the time. And pay 25% more for a german engineered machine.
