WHAT is going on here?! The Impala, the Impala SS - WHATEVER version/model - is HIDEOUS. It looks like a 2000 Accord with the front and the rear of a Cobalt. If you dont think to - then photoshop it. And the Malibu? Come on. I wouldnt drive one for free. And I'm unemployed at the moment. Whoever is on this site defending Chevy - the most awful looking cars around - They work for CHEVY.
PS: I just looked at an Impala 2005 - IT HAD BENCH SEATS. What is this 1978?

Um... I think that's a ridiculous blanket statement. The reason there are so many different vehicles produced by a variety of manufacturers is that people have different wants & needs in a vehicle. Just because it's not your cup o' tea doesn't mean it won't suit someone else to a T. If bench seats don't blow your hair back, don't buy an Impala.

Love my 06' Impala SS! Just took delivery of one. Too few miles to rate it...less than 200, but this car handles extremely well and the SS is a head-turner. Yeah...I will defend GM Chevy, and better yet, I will buy them too, one every other year to be exact. Hondas don't do it for me and have owned them too. It's back-to-basics with this V-8 that SS was intended to have.

I have seen 2 SS Impalas on the road and they do turn my head for sure. LS/LTs probably won't have quite the same effect.
No the Impala is not the most exciting car on the road but it's meant to be a bread and butter sedan, that's what the masses want (hence the success of Accord, Malibu, Camry and Altima). Pontiac Grand Prix is the excitement model if you want more pizazz.
Congrats "ssroadside" on the new Impala.

I just test drove the 2006 impala LTZ. Bench seats are optional, and for those who are completely ignorant, the primary reason they make front bench seats is for taxi cabs to be able to seat more. You can get the bucket seats with floor shifter.
Anyways. Ive never been crazy for american cars. At all. But this new impala is such an improvement over previous generations, in terms of quality. I dont even know where to start, but just go see for yourself. There are still things I do not like about this car, of course, and I am still considering the Nissan Altima 3.5 SE, although that one is getting outdated as well. Its getting to be almost a hard decision between the two. Whooda thunk I'd ever be this close to buying a Chevy.

I prefer bench seats. I checked the LTZ pricing and found the bench seats are an option with the leather package. Does not sound like they're meant for a taxi. That's good news to me. When I car shop again, it'll be for bench seats.
