The Chevrolet Impala is one of those vehicles that seems to live off its heritage alone. In the 1950s and 60s, nothing was cooler than the Impala. Now, it’s just a shadow of its former self. That’s all set to change according to the folks over at Motor Trend who were able to snag spy shots of the 2013 Chevy Impala, which looks to take a page from the presence of its predecessor and bring a little swagger back to the Impala line.
Ask any 15-year old and they’ll tell you the key to swagger is a cool (hot?) outward appearance with a bit of attitude, which is something this camouflaged 2013 Impala looks to have. Losing both the meekness and the blandness of the previous Impala, the new Impala seems to pick up some styling cues from the hot-selling Camaro like a nose that tapers to a slight point, and a similar-looking grille. The 2013 Impala also looks like it grows a bit larger, while dropping down closer to the ground, giving it a low-slung stance. Out back the Impala seems to share some cues like its stylized exhaust tips with its platform mate, the Buick LaCrosse.
What good is looking good on the outside if you can’t back it up on the inside? From the looks of it, Chevrolet is seriously stepping up its game when it comes to the 2013 Impala’s interior. The spy shots show an interior that looks like it was actually designed. The 2013 Impala’s interior will lose the dark, hard plastics and get upscale bits like a stitched dashboard, aluminum trim, a new steering wheel, and a large centrally located nav screen. The 2013 Impala also looks to be getting a redesigned instrument panel with a large multifunction screen flanked by two crisp-looking gauges.
