      Quick Question does the 2018 Chevy Impala Lt have the Stop/Start Technology?

      I don't think it does. The 4 cylinder model might have it, but I don't think they put that in the V6 model.

      Since I had an 04 impala base (3.4, I believe) that made it to just over 230k miles on the original tranny after 6 years/115k miles of ownership, this car was among the top of the list for me when searching for a replacement for said old car.

      I already knew the 2014/15's were going to be nice, but a quick test drive of either a 2lt or 1ltz exceeded my expectations big time. But insurance, unsurprisingly, was going to cost several hundred more than, surprisingly, a Mazda sedan (literally no difference between the 3 & 6) or even a 2 door v6 Accord EXL.

      But if it were entirely up to me, this would definitely be my next car purchase. The pre-owned low mile 2lt with ALL options seems to be the best value hands dowm bc some dealers may incorrectly price it as if it didn't have the pano moonroof, heated leather/suede seats, bose speakers, nav & other equipment between standard & 2ltz/premier spec on it...

      I think you made the right choice, despite just choosing the Mazda for financial reasons. If you prefer something a little sportier and more fun to drive, the Impala won't really do that for you. The Mazda 6 rides really well and still provides a good amount of passenger comfort, and honestly, the Impala isn't really that far above the 6 in that sense. The Impala has a powerful V6, but unlike the Mazda's 4 cylinder, it's just not all that fun to rev out or experience it through a winding backroad. The Mazda's 6-speed automatic is also considerably quicker in both upshifting and downshifting, and it has the "read your mind" feel of a sport sedan. The Impala's transmission feels kind of stubborn and laggy in comparison.

      As for the seats, I think that's another area that Mazda does really well. I'd have to drive a 6 again to get a feel for it, but the Mazda 3's seats really hug you in place. For a mainstream sedan, they were some of the most supportive seats I've sat in. The Impala's seats have good leather, but there's not as much in terms of bolstering or thigh support. Generally, the Impala has a good list of features, but I'd still rather have the Mazda to be honest.
