2019 Chevrolet Impala Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.7

The 2019 Chevrolet Impala has a so-so interior quality, with an overall pleasing design but some low-rent pieces. Passenger and cargo space are among the best in the class, and the Impala has lots of standard and available features.

  • "Flimsy plastic panels on the center console contribute to a lower-quality environment than those of competitors." -- Edmunds
  • "Step inside the Impala's interior and you're met with serious square footage, modern design and impressive fit and finish." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)
  • "Between its limo-sized interior, clever infotainment system and tastefully understated styling, the Impala appeals to those in search of a cushy, feature-packed four-door." -- Left Lane News (2016)

Seating

The Chevrolet Impala seats five on standard cloth upholstery and comes with an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat. Options include leather seats, an eight-way power-adjustable passenger seat, heated front seats, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and a leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel.

The Impala has two complete sets of LATCH child-seat connections in the rear outboard seats. The middle seat has a top tether anchor and a single lower anchor, which can be used in tandem with the lower anchor from the driver's side rear seat. The lower anchors are set deep in the seats, and it's difficult to maneuver around the middle seat's lower anchor.

The Impala's front seats offer excellent forward visibility and are sufficiently comfortable. However, there's little side support. The Impala has one of the roomiest back seats in the class, with ample space even for tall occupants.

  • The adequately padded front seats offer eight-way power adjustments. Side bolstering is minimal, and the optional ventilation is weak. The adult-friendly rear seats are only bested by those in the Avalon for legroom in the class. … The Impala's spaciousness compares favorably with competitors, with plenty of headroom and legroom. The average-size adult will even be comfortable in the rear seat for all-day road trips." -- Edmunds
  • "Visibility is excellent. The Impala's upright seating position gives you a commanding view of the road. … This full-size sedan seats five comfortably and there's a generous amount of rear seat legroom." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)
  • "Passenger room is abundant, especially in the palatial rear seat area, and there's also impressive material quality to go with the spatial quantity: available perforated leather upholstery, sueded microfiber, contrast stitching and soft-touch materials give the cabin a decidedly upscale feel." -- Left Lane News (2016)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2019 Chevrolet Impala include a rearview camera, an 8-inch touch-screen, Bluetooth, three USB ports, a six-speaker stereo, satellite radio, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a Wi-Fi hot spot, proximity key entry, and push-button start. Optional features include remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a dual-pane sunroof, a 120-volt power outlet, navigation, an 11-speaker Bose surround-sound system, rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and lane departure warning.

The Impala's infotainment system is user-friendly and processes touch inputs quickly. However, it can be a little hard to reach from the driver's seat. Plenty of physical control knobs and buttons are laid out intuitively, making it easy to adjust common functions.

  • The majority of primary and secondary controls are well-placed and clearly labeled, but the touchscreen is a bit of a reach and at an upward angle. … But the MyLink system's menus are intuitive and straightforward." -- Edmunds
  • "With quick response, an intuitive interface and detailed graphics, Chevy's MyLink infotainment system is one of the best. The system comes with onboard Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, voice activation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and a large 8-inch screen. An easily programmed navigation system is available and standard on the Premier." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)
  • "Redundant dashboard knobs and steering wheel controls give users alternate options for controlling MyLink, and there's also a voice recognition system for hands-free calls, destination entering, song selection and more. Its 'natural language' capability can recognize a staggering number of phrases — effectively eliminating the need for the clunky and cumbersome memorized commands." -- Left Lane News (2016)

Cargo

The Chevrolet Impala has an 18.8-cubic-foot trunk, which is one of the largest in its class. A split-folding rear seat is standard, allowing the storage of long items. The pass-through with the seats folded is also large.

  • "… the Impala now boasts the biggest trunk in the segment, positively huge at 18.8 cubic feet." -- Edmunds
  • "The Impala's massive 18.8 cubic feet of trunk space will swallow the marching band's instruments. Well, at least the tuba." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)
  • "A standard 60/40-split folding backseat expands the Impala's already deep trunk. The opening between the passenger compartment and cargo area when the seats are down is sizable, and the backrest folds flat with the cargo floor." -- Cars.com (2014)
