2016 Chevy Impala – Cincinnati, OH
If a buyer is on the hunt in Cincinnati, OH for a 2016 Chevy Impala, there is no better place to buy than McCluskey Chevrolet. But, we’ll get to that later. For now, it’s time to focus on the 2016 Chevy Impala. Why? Because, it’s not every day a full-size sedan rolls onto dealer lots with a well-composed, sophisticated, and balanced attitude. With the Impala, it’s expertly designed on the outside, and chock full of technological goodies on the inside. It also provides an exceptional blend of power and efficiency, which is rare for a full-size car. Overall, it’s the perfect full-size sedan to indulge whatever desires lie in a buyer’s heart.
The 2016 Impala is one of the few vehicles out there that truly appeals to whatever someone would want to get out of driving a sedan; so let’s take a deeper look, shall we?
A Well-Composed and Expert Design
The look of the 2016 Impala is very dynamic; it’s athletic and bold, yet there is a sense of elegance that hints at the luxury that lies at its core.
This dynamic look all starts with the Chevy bowtie logo, which appears to sit larger than usual in the center of the grille – almost like a statement about how proud Chevy is of this vehicle. Chevy decided not to plaster the headlights in frivolous chrome edging to attract attention. Instead, they decided to let the chrome around the split-grille and emblem make the front-end pop. A good move on their part, since the front-end is sculpted around a vertical line that runs down to the bottom of the front bumper, which immediately attracts the eyes of onlookers.
An Athletic Demeanor
To play on the bold nature of the front-end, the Impala also has a pronounced athletic stance. The front is bold looking, but still has the same type of sedan-shape. But when viewed from the side, it’s obvious that the tire placement is slightly different than what’s normally found on a sedan. The back tires are shifted forward, and causes them to sit closer to the back door than the rear-bumper. On top of that, Chevy made sure to throw on a muscular bulge over each back tire, which helps accentuate the large distance between the rear-bumper and the back tires, ultimately giving it an elongated rear back-end akin to a hot-rod.
Elegance in Aerodynamics
Finally, the curves and aerodynamic sculpture is what gives this sedan its elegant and handsome demeanor. Starting at the hood, this curve flows smoothly up and over the windshield, and tapers off to eventually meet the well-placed spoiler on the rear-end. Thanks to the strategically placed curves, it looks like this vehicle is always in motion — an onlooker could easily picture the wind moving over it.
Sophisticated and Tech-Savvy
If the outside is for being bold and dynamic, then the inside has one purpose: sophistication. With a combination of luxury elements and state-of-the-art technology, the Impala is sure to make the owner feel like they are sitting in a plush living room.
Much like any successful cabin design, it all starts with the layout. Sometimes, the layout of the dashboard and positioning of the seats can make the cabin space feel cramped and cluttered. Since it’s a full-size sedan, Chevy had plenty of space to work with, and utilized that space well.
The dashboard has a simple and clean presentation, which is a welcoming sight when first entering the vehicle. In order to help with the simple flow of the dashboard, chrome and wood grain trim are available and placed strategically. The infotainment display and center stack are perfectly aligned, and the layout of the buttons is simple, with buttons large enough to press at a quick glance. The steering wheel is intuitive, and allows the driver to control certain functions with the flick of a thumb, and the matching chrome or wood trim that runs along the bottom of the steering wheel adds a sense of unity to the overall piece.
While the dashboard and all of its components find elegance in simplicity, the remainder of the cabin on the higher level trims is as lavish as a high-end luxury sedan. In particular, the two tone black and beige theme with supple leather seats is irresistibly inviting. The matching leather trim that runs across the top of the doors and dash is a nice touch as well, and provides a comfortable place to rest an elbow with the window down. The result? A cabin that’s homey and comfortable. It’s also quite spacious; 105 cu-ft of generous five-passenger seating, with leg, shoulder, and hip room more than what’s expected from a full-size sedan.
Only A Teaser of the Technology Available
The 2016 Chevy Impala has a lot of technology packed into the cabin, and the list of features goes on seemingly forever. However, there are a few notable ones that are worth mentioning. Naturally, Chevy’s MyLink with either a 4.2-inch or eight-inch digital color infotainment display made the list. It can be upgraded with multiple USB ports, and also a SD card receptacle. No matter what the road-trip tunes are stored on, it’s possible to play your music in high quality. Upgrade to the Bose Counterpoint Surround Sound premium 11-speaker system to jam to, and it’ll feel like sitting inside a concert hall with crystal clear definition. In order to aid with smartphone integration, a 4G LTE and built-in Wi-Fi hotspot is on board — which means an internet connection for a phone is always on hand.
Heated front seats, and a ventilated driver seat ensure a comfortable climate no matter the weather outside; and keyless access/start with a remote vehicle starter system let’s the owner start the vehicle from the comfort of their home. This is just a fraction of the technology features found in the Impala. The cabin is truly a technology hub that’s sure to please even the most tech-savvy driver.
Balanced Power and Efficiency
It’s not every day a full-size sedan has the perfect blend of power and fuel-efficiency, so it’s worth mentioning. The 2016 Impala comes with two engine options, which either focus more on fuel economy or more aggressive performance. However, that doesn’t mean these engines are lacking in either category.
The 2.5-liter is the base engine on the Impala’s LS and 1LT trim levels, and with stop/start technology it’s able to get 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway. Quite impressive for a full size-car of this weight and height, especially when considering the horsepower and torque needed to properly move this car down the road. This engine is rated at 196 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque, which is a surprising amount of kick for such great fuel-efficiency.
3.6-liter V6 Engine
The 3.6-liter engine is standard on the 2LT and 2LTZ trim levels, and pushes out a massive 305 horsepower and 264 lb-ft of torque, giving the Impala above-average speed and power for the segment. It doesn’t sacrifice much in fuel economy, either, and is still rated at 18 mpg city and 29 mpg highway – a marginal loss for a big increase in power, which is another impressive feat by Chevy for a large car.
