2013 Chevrolet Impala


Looking really good in this picture.
And in the spy pics we have seen so far. Including the interior.

And it is based on the Buick LaCrosse which is a great driving car already. A less expensive version with its own design can only be great news. Engine choices could include the 2.0 L Turbo as well as the 3.6 L V6.

Only thing is, larger sedans are not the most popular thing these days. As smaller ones are getting so better and better.
The Malibu already faces some competition from the smaller Cruze.
But the new Malibu, to my eyes, is not nearly as good looking as the previous version.
If the Impala turns out to have a great design, some people might not mind moving up.

We'll see.

So much for the RWD car this should be. Yet another snub-nose La Crosse variant.

GM is garbage.

They probably only benchmarked the last Impala like they did for the Malibu.

Vince, did you hear about that whole debacle? A response once and a while would be nice...

Looks like it has extremely poor visibility. So dumb that so many cars risk safety for style. Looks like crap to me. Cars dont look like cars anymore they look more like tampons.

GM did a great job with the LAST Malibu, but the new one looks like a 1990's Regal with Chevy grill. I hope they do better redesigning the Impala.

Vince, you think the previous Malibu looked better than the new one? I have to strongly disagree with you. I thoroughly checked out the 2013 'Bu at the auto show last week. It's a far more attractive package (interior and exterior) than the one it replaces. Take another look.

I agree with march 22 8:38 PM. I originally thought the out going malibu looked better than this new one...till I thoroughly checked out the new one at the auto show. New 'Bu trumps that outgoing model by far.
