Chevrolet Impala (2017) CRASH TEST. Before this round of testing, the Chevrolet Impala hadn’t been put through all the Institute’s evaluations since it was redesigned in 2014, and it has never been rated for small overlap protection. The 2017 model earns an acceptable rating for small overlap protection and good ratings in the other crashworthiness tests.

In the small overlap crash, the Impala’s structure held up reasonably well, with maximum intrusion of 4 inches at the lower door-hinge pillar. The dummy’s head hit the front airbag, but then slid off the left side, leaving the head partially unprotected. Measures taken from the dummy indicated a low risk of any significant injuries.
The Impala’s optional front crash prevention system earns a superior rating. It avoided a crash in the 12 mph test, while its impact speed was reduced by an average of 10 mph in the 25 mph test. The system meets the NHTSA criteria for forward collision warning.
All the available headlights on the Impala earn a poor rating.
