2020 Chevrolet Impala Performance Review

Scorecard

Performance: 7.7

The 2020 Chevrolet Impala has a smooth ride and a reasonably potent V6 engine. It’s not especially agile, however, and its fuel economy estimates are poor for the large car class.

  • "Well-mannered and confidence-inspiring during day-to-day driving, the Impala is a willing and accommodating commuting partner. Light steering makes parking easy." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "Impala Premier models equipped with the optional 20-in aluminum wheels sure look terrific, but there is a penalty to be paid in terms of ride quality and interior noise. So equipped, more of the road texture is delivered to the cabin, sometimes rudely, as in the case of traveling over a pothole. The 20-in tires also create more road noise." -- Autotrader (2017)
  • "One of the best traits about the … Chevy Impala is its comfortable and quiet ride. This is a superb choice if you want a big sedan that prioritizes wafting over lanes vs. shrieking around corners." -- Kelley Blue Book (2017)

Acceleration and Power

Under the hood of every 2020 Impala is a 305-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine. It’s paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

The Impala accelerates reasonably quickly, and the engine is well-suited for city cruises or highway jaunts. Some critics say the automatic transmission shifts quickly and confidently, but others report that it occasionally struggles to find the right gear.

The Impala’s 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway are some of the worst fuel economy ratings in the segment.

  • "The V6, which is shared with the Chevy Camaro, boasts 305 horsepower and gives the Impala significantly more thrust. With the V6 the sedan is capable of 0-60-mph acceleration in about 6.0 seconds." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)
  • "Shifts are smooth and quick. The Impala gets up to highway speeds quickly and passes with confidence." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "For a large family sedan, the Impala is effortless to drive. … Chevrolet could improve the new Impala with regard to the 6-speed automatic transmission. We found that it stumbled on occasion, especially when driving in the mountains. A manual-shift button is provided at the top of the gear selector, but it's unsatisfying to use despite the fact that it matches engine revs when downshifting." -- Autotrader (2018)

Handling and Braking

The Impala provides a cushioned ride and does a good job keeping its occupants comfortable. Its handling draws mixed reviews, however. Some critics find it cumbersome, while others say it’s competent. Front-wheel drive is standard.

  • "Less likable is the Impala's ponderous handling and its overly sensitive steering, which gives it a tendency to wander in its lane on the highway." -- Edmunds
  • "Despite its mass, the Chevrolet Impala has an unexpected spryness to its handling, but it’s just as comfortable as those classic versions were in decades past." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)
  • "The Impala's electric steering offers pleasing heft regardless of vehicle speed and crisp response when bending the Impala into a curve or turning into a parking space. Given that it's the same system as found in the Camaro but recalibrated for the full-size Chevy sedan, perhaps this comes as no surprise. Suspension tuning provides a deft blend of ride smoothness and handling prowess -- and while the Impala is not a sport sedan, it can cover ground at a rapid pace on twisty roads." -- Autotrader (2018)
