1958 Chevrolet Impala 

  • 1958
 
The 2013 Chevrolet Impala combines strong acceleration with surprising fuel efficiency, but poor seat comfort and shoddy cabin quality reinforce its rental-car personality.

It's a reminder of how much better GM's interiors are today, and also of how desperately they needed renewal at the beginning of the millennium, because this interior was a big improvement for the Impala when it debuted in the 2006 sedan.

Interior

The interior has seen few significant changes since then, but the upcoming 2014 Impala gets a modern interior that's on par with the best in the Chevrolet lineup.

The 2013 Chevrolet Impala's interior is highlighted by simple instruments with large, easy-to-read numerals and lettering.
by KBB (May, 2013)
Compared with newer Chevy sedans like the Malibu and Cruze, the Impala's cabin is shockingly outdated.
by cars.com (Nov, 2012)

Engine

The V-6 makes nearly as much power as the 5.3-liter V-8 from the Impala SS of a few years ago, and it feels nearly as potent while delivering better gas mileage.
by cars.com (Nov, 2012)
A direct fuel-injected 3.6-liter V6 is the sole engine choice for the 2013 Chevy Impala.
by KBB (May, 2013)
The V-6 pulls strongly whether you're accelerating from a stop, at midrange speeds or on the highway.

Body style

Kelley Blue Book expects the 2013 Chevrolet Impala sedan to hold resale values slightly better than previous Impalas, but still trailing the Chrysler 300 and the Ford Taurus, and falling well short of the resale values set by the Toyota Avalon and the Nissan Maxima.
by KBB (May, 2013)
Despite its dated feel overall, the Impala remains the best-selling full-size sedan by a wide margin.
