Impala is American classic. This full size sedan was built for the first time for the 1958 model year, and it has one of the longest history of all American made cars. Its style as well as its name became a trade mark in United States. It also recieved numerous car of the year awards and it was best selling model in whole United States for the year 1965. Back then Impala took the leading position in though competition with Ford Galaxie 500 and Plymouth Fury. It is the most expensive Chevrolet passenger car, and also the most popular one. Chevrolet Caprice was at first the tuned Impala, before GM decided to start producing it as a separate model. In 2013 GM presented mild hybrid Impala, called Impala eAssist.
2014 Chevrolet Impala Hybrid is completely redesigned. It is built on a new platform, which it shares with Buick LaCrosse and Cadillac XTS. New platform add a few inches in Impala longitude, it also has some bigger curves then previous Impala models as well as the more sporty and aerodynamic look.
Interior was also redesigned, or rather built from scraps. In earlier Chevrolet Impala models lack of interior features was the biggest objection made by most of automobile critics. New Impala interior design looks modern and sophisticated. It also has much more hi tech features then previous models (for example 2013 Chevy Impala didn’t even have a navigation system). Due to the longer wheelbase, new Impala is much more roomy and comfortable. You can choose between vinyl/suede, cloth/suede and leather upholstery. It also has a spacious luggage area, but in Impala Hybrid trunk is smaller then in regular
2014 Chevy Impala models because of the battery which is placed inside.
2014 Chevrolet Impala Hybrid (eAssist) uses a small electric motor, and saves fuel drstically, although it is much slower then regular Impala models. Similar engine on Buick LaCrosse can reach from 0 to 60 mph in 9,2 seconds. Fuel economy for hybrid Impala goes from 30 mpg in city condition up to 35 mpg on the highway, which is a great result for this big sedan vehicle.

Green enthusiasts are probably happy that even American rent-a-car classics like Chevy Impala, now have their hybrid versions. New hybrid Impala will cut the gasoline costs and we hope in later production years will become faster and match the performance of regular Impala models.
