Inside the new model, Chevrolet have also been very busy with a completely new cabin with more front and rear leg room, and the sedan also benefits from an enlarged trunk space.

They haven’t missed out on the ICE (In Car Entertainment) either; full smart phone connectivity is installed thanks to the next generation of the MyLink system.

A further added bonus is the noise reduction system by BOSE, it is fitted as standard to all 4-cylinder engine models.

2017 Chevrolet Impala engine set

Chevrolet is trying to increase the market share for the Impala, it plans to do this by offering a wider variety of engines; two 4-cylinder engines and the flagship (& exclusive) 3.6 liter V6.

The ecotec 2.4 liter 4-cylinder comes with eAssist and Chevrolet say that gas consumption should be around the 35 MPG mark when driving on the highway.

The V6 engine takes top honors for power, claiming to be the most powerful V6 engine in this sector (within the American market).

Finally, the new model will be fitted with the very latest electro-mechanical steering system and upgraded suspension, meaning an altogether better ride, even when pushing hard.
