Jaidah Automotive, the exclusive importer and distributor of Chevrolet in Qatar, recently announced the arrival of the 2014 Impala in Qatar.
The handsomely-impressive all-new flagship sedan from Chevrolet was unveiled at a special launch event presided over by Mohamed Jaidah, Group Executive Director of Jaidah Group; Mark Jenkins, General Manager of Jaidah Automotive; and Bader El Houssami, Regional Manager – General Motors.
The 2014 Chevrolet Impala is powered by a 3.6 litre V6 aluminium engine with Variable Valve Timing with fuel-saving direct injection. Matched with a six-speed automatic transmission, it is rated at 305 horsepower and 356 Nm of torque, with excellent fuel economy. And to complement power with safety, its industry-leading safety features include 10 standard air bags, forward collision alert, lane departure warning, side blind zone alert, rear cross traffic alert, rear camera and rear-park assist.
Inside, the 2014 Impala offers ultimate comfort in a quiet environment with spacious front and rear legroom as well as generous storage. Premium interior materials and details such as high-quality fabric, suede microfibre and perforated leather appointments, complement the quiet environment and give the Impala a substantive look and feel. Providing essential information to the driver, the instrument cluster has a rich look, with multidimensional gauges and configurable colour on a 4.2-inch screen.
A prominent ‘centre stack’ is integrated in the instrument panel and houses the climate controls and Chevrolet MyLink, which includes navigation and Bluetooth audio streaming among many other features – and is controlled via a touch screen on an available eight-inch display. A standard audio amplifier is a feature not typical for the segment and a Bose surround-sound audio system is available – the first in a Chevrolet car. And on its eight-inch touch-screen console, drivers and passengers can easily fling through lists, swipe and drag just as they would on a tablet.
Some of the other onboard features that help provide a quiet driving experience are the vehicle’s strong body structure, acoustically laminated windshield and front-door glass, liquid-applied sound deadener, sound-absorbing carpet and isolated engine cradle. Also, its stiff architecture has enabled engineers to tune the ride and handling more precisely, for a great overall feeling of control and comfort.
Offering a roomy and airy ambience, the 2014 Chevrolet Impala’s thin A-pillars and low instrument panel enhance outward visibility, and the car’s six-window ‘greenhouse’ surround occupants with natural light. The seats are bolstered for great support and seat cushions deliver a firm, premium feel that’s equally comfortable on a long journey or a five-minute trip to the store.
Additional available features include remote start, passive entry/exit, keyless starting, power tilting/telescoping steering column with memory, dual-zone climate control and ventilated front seats. The Impala also packs great storage options, including a generous centre console and a hidden storage area behind the optional motorised eight-inch colour touch screen.
The Chevrolet Impala has been America’s best-selling full-size sedan since 2004, with total sales of more than 169,000 in 2012.
Jaidah Automative is located at Jaidah Flyover, B Ring Road, and at the new showroom on Khalifah Street, near TV Roundabout.
