Which Model Year of the Chevrolet Impala Is Best?

The 2015 Impala is part of a generation that started with the 2014 model. There have been some notable changes to the Impala over the years.

2015 Chevrolet Impala Model Recalls

The 2015 Impala has three open recalls. One addresses an occupant sensing system that may fail to deploy the front passenger air bag if a child seat is in the front seat. Chevy also issued a recall on an electronic parking brake that may remain partially engaged and increase the risk of fire due to excessive heat. The last recall involves the center storage console that may not stay latched. Make sure a Chevrolet dealer addressed these recalls before purchasing a 2015 Impala.

Which Used Chevrolet Impala Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Impala comes in three trim levels: LS, LT, and LTZ. The base trim comes with a decent list of features, including an infotainment system with a 4.2-inch display, Bluetooth, a USB port, satellite radio, six speakers, and a Wi-Fi hot spot. Most shoppers will be pleased with this list of features. However, many reviewers recommend opting for a model with the available 3.6-liter V6 engine. Shoppers interested in the upgraded MyLink infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen will want to focus on the LT or LTZ trims. Highlights of the LTZ trim include leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a generous list of safety tech that includes forward collision warning and rear cross traffic alert.

What Does Chevrolet's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Chevrolet offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles six years old or less and with fewer than 75,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Chevy extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to six years or 100,000 miles. These vehicles also get a one-year/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty after the three-year/36,000-mile new-car warranty expires. Chevrolet CPO vehicles must pass a 172-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and 24-hour roadside assistance may be available, so read Chevy’s warranty page carefully.

Chevrolet has one of the better CPO programs among affordable carmakers, but Hyundai, Buick, and Kia are better, according to our analysis.

2015 Chevrolet Impala Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2015 Chevrolet Impala or 2015 Buick LaCrosse?

Both the Buick LaCrosse and the Impala have strong engine lineups, comfy rides, lots of passenger space, and upscale cabins. However, there are a few key differences between these corporate cousins. The LaCrosse has a much better reliability rating than the Impala. That said, the Impala has better steering feedback, and it comes with more trunk space. For better performance and a larger trunk, go with the Impala. For the added peace of mind that comes with a higher reliability rating, you'll want the LaCrosse.

Which Is Better: 2015 Chevrolet Impala or 2015 Toyota Avalon?

The Toyota Avalon's upscale interior, balanced ride, and powerful standard V6 engine makes it a solid contender to the Impala. That said, the Impala's available V6 engine is stronger, and it features a larger trunk. Its average price is also lower than the Avalon's. These two are close in our rankings, but the Impala is a slightly more well-rounded sedan.

2015 Impala Performance

How Does the 2015 Chevrolet Impala Model Drive?

The Impala's smooth ride and poised handling make it a comfortable vehicle for your daily commute. Its standard 196-horsepower 2.5-liter engine has solid power output, and its stop-start technology helps to conserve fuel by shutting the engine off when the car is stopped. But it's the available 305-horsepower V6 engine that critics praise for its quick acceleration. Both engines are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission that delivers smooth shifts.

Does the 2015 Chevrolet Impala Get Good Gas Mileage?

The Impala has great gas mileage estimates. The base model gets 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway, while models with the V6 engine get up to 18 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.

2015 Impala Interior

How Many People Does the 2015 Impala Seat?

There's seating for five people in the Impala. Cloth upholstery and a power-adjustable driver's seat are standard. A power-adjustable passenger seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather upholstery, and heated front seats are available. Both rows are spacious, even for taller adults.

How Many Car Seats Fit in the 2015 Chevrolet Impala?

There are two sets of LATCH child-seat connectors on the rear outboard seats. The middle seat has an upper tether and one lower anchor, and it can borrow a lower anchor from an adjoining seat that’s not in use. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Impala's LATCH system the second-highest rating of Acceptable for ease of use. It noted that the lower anchors are too deep in the seats, and the middle-seat lower anchors are difficult to maneuver around.

2015 Chevrolet Impala Features

The Impala comes standard with an infotainment system with a 4.2-inch display, satellite radio, six speakers, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and a USB port. Available features include an 8-inch touch screen and two additional USB ports. The infotainment system is easy to use, but reviewers noted that the system is slow to respond to user inputs. Since technology standards change, you’ll want to make sure that your mobile device can connect to the Impala’s Bluetooth system.
