Consumer Reports has now labeled the new Impala as one of the best sedans on sale in the U.S. with a score of 95 out of 100.
The all-new 2014 Chevy Impala has just received a top rating from Consumer Reports. Consumer Reports has now labeled the new Impala as one of the best sedans on sale in the U.S. with a score of 95 out of 100.
The news also marks the first time that a domestic car has received this high of a score from Consumer Reports. “The domestic automakers, they do a lot right but there’s often something that’s holding them back,” Jake Fisher, director of Consumer Reports’ automotive testing, told Automotive News. “This car just kind of gets it all right. They really have a winner here.”
According to Consumer Reports, the new Impala scored well due to its luxury car feel, which makes it competitive with sedans that cost a lot more, like the Audi A6 and Lexus LS 460 L. “It has been transformed from a woefully uncompetitive and outdated model that was to be avoided even as a free upgrade at the rental-car counter into a thoroughly modern and remarkably enjoyable vehicle.”
There are only two other vehicles currently on sale that have a higher score than the Impala: the Tesla Model S and the BMW 135i coupe. The Impala is tied with the Infiniti G37 for the third highest ranking.
