Ever since we told you about the 2014 Chevrolet Impala hitting the top of the Consumer Report rankings, it seems like the revitalized sedan has been earning accolade after accolade from the automotive community for its interior furnishings, handling, and modern-yet-classic design. Now the star of the Chevrolet lineup has earned another stripe: top notch safety.
In a recent battery of tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Impala garnered an impressive five-star safety rating. Coming from a widely respected safety institution, that’s quite the praise indeed.
Vehicle safety is a major factor taken into account by drivers across the nation, according to Gary Kent, the general director of Vehicle Safety and Crashworthiness for GM. In redesigning the sedan, the Impala has achieved a benchmark of worthiness by incorporating features never before seen in a Chevrolet car.
And what are these features, you ask?
There are quite a few. Crash-imminent braking and collision warning both alerts you and keeps you safe in the event an accident is about to occur, with other features such as the manufacturer-first traffic-sensing radar and lane departure alerts keep you on the ball while on the road. In the event of a crash itself, the Impala has ten airbags and assets like OnStar and MyLink to allow you to place emergency calls.
