As you'd expect from a large domestic sedan, the 2018 Chevrolet Impala has a smooth ride quality, a spacious interior with plenty of room for rear-seat passengers, and a trunk that's one of the largest available in any sedan.

PROS
Smooth, quiet ride
Spacious rear seat and trunk
Sleek cabin with lots of technology upgrades
Capable optional V6

CONS
Less handling prowess than its main rivals
Thick roof pillars hamper visibility
Some interior surfaces feel cheap
