Which Used Chevrolet Impala Trim Is Right for Me?

The 2019 Chevrolet Impala comes in three trims: LS, LT, and Premier. The LS and LT come standard with a four-cylinder engine, and they're available with a V6. Premier models are equipped with the V6. All Impalas feature front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission.

Though the base model comes well-equipped, the midrange Impala LT is a better choice because it's available with many features that you can't get in the LS trim. Since each trim offered different options when new, you may be able to find Impala models with more features than we list below.

  • Chevrolet Impala LS: The Impala LS comes standard with a rearview camera, an 8-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, three USB ports, a six-speaker stereo, satellite radio, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and a Wi-Fi hot spot. The base model also has cloth and synthetic leather upholstery, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, proximity keyless entry, and push-button start.
  • Chevrolet Impala LT: In addition to the LS trim's features, the Impala LT comes with dual-zone automatic climate control and remote start.
  • Chevrolet Impala Premier: The Impala Premier adds leather upholstery, heated front seats, an eight-way power-adjustable passenger seat, a Bose surround-sound stereo, a 120-volt household-style power outlet, navigation, rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, 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.

2019 Chevrolet Impala Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2019 Chevrolet Impala or 2019 Toyota Avalon?

The 2019 Toyota Avalon is one of the Impala's top challengers in the large car class, and it gives the Chevrolet a run for its money. Both cars ride comfortably, but the Avalon comes standard with a V6, which is an option in the Impala. Inside, the Avalon feels more luxurious and has many more standard features. The Toyota also offers some features – such as a head-up display, a surround-view parking camera system, and reverse automatic braking – that you can't get in the Impala.

Which Is Better: 2019 Chevrolet Impala or 2019 Buick LaCrosse?

The 2019 Buick LaCrosse and the Impala are both GM vehicles, and the better choice comes down to personal preference. The LaCrosse gets good gas mileage thanks to its standard mild-hybrid powertrain, and it also delivers quick acceleration from a stop. The LaCrosse feels more poised through turns than other large sedans, but it doesn't sacrifice passenger comfort or ride quality. Both cars have similar standard features lists and plenty of back-seat room. The Impala has a larger trunk, but the LaCrosse touts higher-quality cabin materials.

2019 Impala Performance

How Does the 2019 Chevrolet Impala Drive?

The four-cylinder base engine feels taxed by the Impala's bulk, making the available V6 a better choice. This large sedan delivers a cushioned ride for the most part, but the available 20-inch wheels leave you feeling more road impacts. The Impala is easy to maneuver despite its size, and it has composed handling.

  • Base engine: 197-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder
  • Available engine: 305-horsepower 3.6-liter V6
  • Drivetrain: front-wheel drive
  • Transmission: six-speed automatic
Does the 2019 Chevrolet Impala Get Good Gas Mileage?

With its base engine, the Impala gets 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway, which are typical ratings for the class. With the V6, this Chevy sedan gets 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.

2019 Impala Interior

How Many People Does the 2019 Impala Seat?

The 2019 Impala seats five people in two rows. It features an attractive cabin with modern styling, but a few low-rent plastics keep the interior from feeling as luxurious as it could.

The front seats are comfortable and supportive, though they could use more side bolstering. It's easy to see the road ahead, but thick roof pillars impede side visibility at times. The rear seats are among the most expansive in the class, and tall adults can easily ride in the back.

Standard seating features:

  • Cloth and synthetic leather upholstery
  • Power-adjustable driver's seat

Available seating features:

  • Genuine leather upholstery
  • Power-adjustable passenger seat
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Heated steering wheel
How Many Child Car Seats Fit in the 2019 Chevrolet Impala?

The 2019 Impala has two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors for the rear outboard seats and an upper tether and one lower anchor for the rear middle seat. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave this LATCH system the second-highest rating of Acceptable for ease of use, citing lower anchors that are set too deeply in the seats.

2019 Chevrolet Impala Features

The MyLink infotainment system has an intuitive interface that's easy to master. The touch screen is a bit of a reach from the driver's seat, but it responds well to inputs, and there are physical controls for some basic functions. Standard features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make it easy to sync your smartphone with the vehicle.

  • Standard infotainment features: an 8-inch touch-screen, Bluetooth, three USB ports, a six-speaker stereo, satellite radio, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and a Wi-Fi hot spot
  • Available infotainment features: navigation and an 11-speaker Bose surround-sound system
  • Additional standard features: proximity keyless entry and push-button start
  • Other available features: remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a dual-pane sunroof, and a 120-volt power outlet
