The 2012 Impala retains the classic American full-size attributes of a big, roomy cabin, an equally big trunk, and a soft, comfortable ride. With the 2012 Chevy Impala sedan, you get a powerful, safe and reliable sedan with simple and straightforward functions for the radio, heating and A/C. It also has a pretty solid reliability rating.
If you’re looking for a roomy, reliable sedan with basic features and conservative good looks, the 2012 Chevy Impala sedan is worth a look. The suite of OnStar services provides an added measure of personal service you won’t find on the Impala’s competitors.
The 2012 Impala gains greatly from its new 3.6-liter V6 engine. This 300-horsepower engine is velvety-smooth, silent and strong. The new 6-speed automatic transmission delivers seamless shifts and helps the 2012 Chevy Impala sedan to achieve an impressive 30-mpg highway figure. The Impala’s seating is supportive both front and rear, with wide bucket seats long on comfort. The Impala delivers a soft, comfortable ride ideal for straight, smooth pavement.
Interior: The 2012 Chevrolet Impala sedan’s interior is highlighted by simple instruments with large, easy-to-read numerals and lettering. Large rotary knobs for the radio and ventilation are also a nice change from smallish, hard-to-decipher buttons, and it’s easy to find a place to store small items thanks to the numerous cup holders and storage areas throughout the car. The 2012 Chevrolet Impala sedan is one of the last cars to offer a front bench seat.
Exterior: Conservative yet stylish, the 2012 Chevrolet Impala’s look is punctuated by a new grille flanked by a pair of highly stylized rearward swept headlights. The Impala’s clean linear lines give the look and feel of a sedate luxury sedan. We like that the 2012 Chevy Impala sedan’s roofline remains high as it moves rearward, a design that improves rear-seat headroom. The Impala’s trunk lid opens straight up to allow for easy loading and the low lift-over height aids when loading heavy or large items.
Under the Hood: The Impala sedan’s powertrain consists of a 3.6-liter DOHC engine with variable valve timing and E85 compatibility. This is the same excellent GM V6 used in Buick and Cadillac sedans, and it serves the Impala equally well. The new 6-speed automatic is one of GM’s best and provides smooth shifts as well as the ability to avoid hunting for the right gear when climbing hills.
