3. Chevrolet Impala
Previously relegated to rental fleets, the Impala has undergone a massive makeover to kick off the tenth generation of the car. Gone is the low-rent interior, replaced by craftsmanship and materials that elevate the Impala to a near-luxury status. The exterior also receives a major reworking, erasing the bland lines and adding some much-needed drama through well-placed creases in the sheet metal. The car also brings a host of technological features that are sure to capture the fancy of a number of car shoppers, such as HD radio, Bluetooth phone connectivity and the OnStar emergency contact system. Optional features that also promise to spike Impala sales include rear parking sensors and camera, ventilated front seats, adaptive cruise control, and a heated steering wheel.
