The 2014 Impala’s V6 engine was a smooth ride. Of course, its huge. It’s an American car, its gotta be! That is the first thing I said to my friend, ‘ it’s huge, it has to be a gas guzzler!’

But then again, gas is cheaper than water here…so, not such a huge concern?

Inside the Impala by Chevrolet, the vehicle offers  comfort with spacious front and rear legroom, generous storage and smartphone-influenced connectivity with MyLink, Chevrolet’s new infotainment system.

The 2014 Impala arrives in showrooms in June and is offered in LS, LT and LTZ models. In the United Arab Emirates, prices start at AED 105,000 for the LS and AED 129,000 for the LTZ model.

And now for the specs of the car: Exterior colors include Black, Blue Ray Metallic, Champagne Silver Metallic, Crystal Red Tintcoat, Red Rock Metallic, Ashen Gray Metallic, Silver Ice Metallic, Summit White and White Diamond Tricoat. The 2014 Impala builds on Chevrolet’s signature dual-cockpit interior with greater attention to detail and upscale features – seen in everything from the wraparound flow of the bold instrument panel into the door panels and the available ambient lighting, to the soft feel of the materials and the premium appearance of the seats’ stitching.

The instrument panel integrates a dynamic instrument cluster with a standard 4.2-inch color display with reconfigurable features for the driver information center.

An eight-inch touch screen with concealed storage behind it is matched with the available Chevy MyLink system on LT and LTZ models. The available safety features and benefits include firsts for Chevrolet and Impala:

  • Forward collision alert – Camera technology detects a possible crash threat and alerts the driver, giving him or her time to stop and/or change course.
  • Lane departure warning – A camera-based lane detection system warns the driver of impending lane changes. The camera, mounted near the inside rearview mirror, identifies traffic lane markings and provides audible alerts.
  • Side blind zone alert – Using radar sensors on both sides of the vehicle, the system “looks” for other vehicles in the blind zone areas of the Impala and indicates their presence with LED-lit symbols in the outside mirrors.
  • Rear cross traffic alert – Based on the radar sensors of side blind zone alert, it warns the driver of vehicles in traffic when backing out of a parking spot – including angled parking. Visual and audible alerts are triggered if moving vehicles are detected.
  • Rear vision camera with dynamic guidelines – With a display in the center stack infotainment system, the camera provides a view of objects directly behind the Impala, while the dynamic guidelines provide a reference that helps make parking and other maneuvers easier.
  • Ultrasonic rear park assist – Uses sensors in the rear bumper to detect objects directly behind the vehicle and alerts the driver.

  The advanced, crash-avoidance technologies complement the Impala’s occupant protection features, including 10 standard air bags:

  • Dual-depth frontal passenger air bags with passenger sensing system
  • Driver and front passenger side-impact air bags
  • Driver and front passenger knee air bags
  • Rear outboard side-impact air bags
  • Head curtain air bags with rollover sensing for front and rear outboard positions
  • Safety belt pretensioners
  • Child seat restraint system
