Drivers are constantly on the lookout for sleek cars that provide plenty of style and comfort without sacrificing safety. The 2014 Chevrolet Impala aims to offer just that, and with the latest news about its crash performance, it may be well on its way. The new vehicle received the highest possible five-star Overall Vehicle Score for its safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

The redesigned sedan was given a fresh round of auto repair to improve all aspects of safety and passenger protection. New radar technologies have been installed to allow the vehicle to adjust speed when in cruise control, and it can also help the car maneuver in stop-and-go traffic. Multiple alerts are also available to help drivers recognize dangerous situations and prevent crashes or accidents from occurring. 

"Safety is a key consideration for all car buyers, and Impala sets a new benchmark for Chevrolet's flagship sedan," said Gay Kent, GM's general director of Vehicle Safety and Crashworthiness. "The 2013 Chevrolet Impala is designed to provide excellent crash safety and offers customers several safety technologies not previously available in Chevrolets." 

According to The Car Connection, this is the third Chevrolet sedan to earn top safety marks from the NHTSA, joining the Chevrolet Cruze and Chevrolet Malibu.
