DETROIT -- August 19, 2014: If a comfortable ride is your thing, says the 2014 Impala is your top choice under $30,000.

Though the Impala has adapted to evolving technologies and consumer trends through the years, the 10th generation Impala has remained true to its roots in offering generous cabin spaciousness and a comfortable ride.

Entry-luxury vehicles like the 2014 Volvo S60, 2014 Toyota Avalon and 2014 Chrysler 300 made the list, which was selected by the consumer website’s editors, but the Impala came out on top.

"Totally redesigned for 2014, our No. 1 pick on this list – the Chevrolet Impala – proves that the big, comfortable, affordable American sedan is alive and well, and now it is stylish and modern, too,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book’s

The 2014 Impala’s comfort and refinement are rooted in a stronger body structure, enabling a quieter passenger environment and a greater overall feeling of quality.

Making the Impala’s cabin quiet was a top priority for engineers, who implemented technologies like triple-sealed doors, available active-noise cancelling technology and acoustic foam baffles. A Detroit rock band, the Gentlemen Mutineers, even used the vehicle as a recording studio to prove its cabin’s quietness.

The stiffer architecture also enabled engineers to tune the ride and handling more precisely, for a greater feeling of control and comfort.

The new Impala also has a roomier, airier ambience. Thin A-pillars and a low instrument panel enhance outward visibility, while the car’s six-window “greenhouse” surrounds passengers with natural light. The seats are bolstered for greater support and the seat cushions deliver a firm, premium feel that’s equally comfortable on a 500-mile journey as a five-minute trip to the store.
