Consumer Reports announced today that the 2014 Impala has become the first Detroit Three sedan in 20 years to beat a Japanese or German rival as the top-scoring sedan for the year, and Boston Area Chevorlet Dealers are thrilled. “We are very proud to have a car like this”, said Mark Buck, sales manager at Mirak Chevrolet, a Boston Chevrolet Dealer in Arlington, MA. “We knew that the all-new Impala would be a hit, and we’re thrilled that Consumer Reports agrees”,
Consumer Reports’ engineers found the Impala rides like a luxury sedan, with a cushy and controlled demeanor, while delivering surprisingly agile handling, capable acceleration and excellent braking,” said the consumer-products testing magazine. With a score of 95 out of a possible 100 points, the Impala outscores cars costing as much as $20,000 more, they said.
“The Impala corners quite well for a large car, with prompt turn-in response and controlled body lean,” the magazine said. “Steering is nicely weighted; it’s light enough for parking maneuvers and provides decent feedback. When pushed to its handling limits, the Impala proved secure, responsive, balanced, and easy to control.”
Starting at $26,725, the Impala beat out comparable rivals like the latest Ford Taurus, Dodge Charger and Toyota Avalon.
Consumer Reports gave the vehicle an overall rating of 95, the highest for a sedan. It earned high marks for solid handling, spacious interior cabin design, and intuitive controls.
Consumer Reports is considered to be the single most influential publication among car shoppers. Unlike other auto review outlets, Consumer Reports does not accept any advertising and it buys all the cars it tests, rather than relying on cars provided by manufacturers.
