Great news for the 2014 Chevrolet Impala
It got excellent scores in recent crash tests.
And an amazing review from Consumer Report.
Sure, I ofter don’t agree with them. And car site readers love to hate Consumer Report…
But in this case, I do agree.
The new Impala IS an excellent car.

The new Impala got its platform from the short-lived 2010/2011 Saab 9-5, so it's no surprise that it's a safe car.
I recall that the "new" 9-5 was the safest car ever tested by the Euro NCAP at the time.
I still wonder what GM will do for their next generation of cars now that Saab is gone, and Saab's engineers are working for the competition.
Saab gave them platforms for the SRx, XTs, Impala, Malibu, Regal and others. That's a sizable chunk of their sedan/crossover lineup. Not saying GM can't engineer a decent large FWD platform on their own, but it's never been their strong suit.
