The 2014 Impala, available at Christenson Chevrolet, is a huge leap in safety, styling, and technology over it’s predecessor.
Standard safety features include;
- 10 Airbags to help protect every part of the Impala’s occupants. Most of you know about the usual six airbags. So lets explore the other four. Two protect the knees of the driver and front passenger. The other two protect the mid-section of the outboard passengers in the back seat. Combined with Impala’s safety cage, it;s like cruising down the road in bubble wrap. 🙂
- Along with Anti-lock Brakes and Traction Control, the Impala also has StabiliTrak. This system automatically applies precise amounts of brake pressure at individual wheels and reduces the engine torque to help the driver keep the vehicle on track. For example, it’s a cold snowy day and the road has a hard right curve. Without StabiliTrak, you turn your wheel but the continue to go straight. This is called “Under-steer”. With StabiliTrak, the Impala knows you have the wheel turned and recognizes the start of under-steer. It then reduces the engine power and uses individual brakes to help keep your car on it’s intended path.
These are just two of the many safety features that are standard on the new Impala. There are also new safety options available as well. You can talk with one of our Chevy Sales Specialists for information about such options as
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
- Forward Collision Alert
- Side Blind Zone Alert
- Lane Departure Warning
The curves and lines of the new body are aggressive and upscale. With some inspiration from the Camaro. The new Impala is both sporty and elegant. With some of the highest praise in years coming from critics. Such as;
- “envy-me exterior styling” Car & Driver
- “arresting exterior design” Motor Trend
- “it is sure to further blur the lines between luxury cars and mass-market vehicles” Wall Street Journal
I have mentioned some of the safety technology. But let’s look at a piece of tech that just about everyone interacts with in the car. The new available MyLink system is one of the biggest and easiest to use. It has three, that’s right 3, USB ports, an auxiliary jack, and an SD card slot. That’s a ton of options to get media to the 8″ control screen. Oh and one of those USB ports is behind the display that raises and lowers with the push of a button and is lockable. There is Bluetooth for wireless streaming of your music and voice recognition to listen to your commands. You can even customize the screen to set up your most used icons and apps.
All in all, the 2014 Impala is exactly what Chevy is striving for. Giving the consumer more than they expect. Check out our 2014 Impala inventory at www.christensonchevy.com or stop in our all new showroom for a closer look. We are at 9700 Indianapolis Blvd in Highland Indiana. Thank you.
