When it comes to buying a luxury car on a budget, most people look towards models designed and manufactured by Chevrolet. Not only can those cars compete with the likes of BMW for style and comfort, but they also have an amazing safety record. It has taken a long time for the people behind this company to build a reputation for being the best in the business. Today we see they produce some of the most impressive models on the market. It should come as no surprise that the latest Impala edition is making waves around the world. While the model is only available for the American market at the current time, word on the grapevine is it will soon get released in the UK and Europe too.
You get a lot for your money when buying any model from Chevrolet. The Impala is currently available for between $27,315 and $40,322. Those who decide to pay a little more will get all the standard features you would expect with some extras thrown in. You would expect to pay as much as $60,000 for a similar model from the likes of BMW or Mercedes-Benz. Anyone who wants to spend less should consider getting hold of a second-hand model. All dealers with a good inventory of used cars should have one in stock.
We managed to obtain this vehicle for an entire weekend, and so we had plenty of time to put it through its paces. You’ll be glad to hear it was a dream to drive in all manner of different conditions. In our road tests, we found that response times were quick, and braking distances were as we predicted. When taking the car out on a track, we managed to reach top speeds of just over 240 km/h. That said, we did opt for the model with a 3 liter V8 engine. What else would you expect?
The designers at Chevrolet understand that safety is of paramount importance to their customers. For that reason, the new Impala is equipped with some of the best tools and devices in the world. You can expect to find..
