Aren't nearly as popular as they used to be the large sedans. That Chevrolet would discontinue the Impala after the 2019 model year, we even thought. Somehow the Impala is soldiering on for at least one more year, yet. There's life yet in Chevy's big four-door, and even though the number of trim levels and options diminishes for 2022.
Offering a roomy interior, a spacious trunk, smooth acceleration and a ride quality that's plush without being overly soft and floaty, this generation of Impala - introduced in 2014 - has always been a solid choice in the segment. The Impala does exactly what you expect from a large, comfort-oriented sedan, in short. Which gives it a tendency to wander in its lane on the highway, less likable is the Impala's ponderous handling and its overly sensitive steering. We're not enamored with the thick front roof pillars that obscure your view around road curves, also. The stay-of-execution 2022 Impala remains a solid pick, but competitors such as the Kia Cadenza and the Toyota Avalon are nicer overall, on the whole.
So, if you're considering the Chevy Impala over the smaller Malibu, chances are you want a comfy cruiser that feels a little special. Skip over the base LT and opt for the Premier, which includes advanced safety features, upgraded headlights and leather, to that end. It's worth getting the Premier Convenience package, which costs little and adds a surprising number of desirable luxury features, we also think.

A full-size sedan available in two trim levels, is The 2022 Chevrolet Impala. The LT replaces the discontinued LS as the entry-level Impala.

Buyers who want the whole shebang can upgrade to the Premier model, which has two packages that further upgrade its equipment offerings, too.
