I own a 2014 Impala 2LTZ (new model style), and previously owned a 2008, 2011, and 2012 Impala LTZ (previous model style).
One suggestion: The 2014 LTZ model (later changed to the Premier line), came standard with 19-inch, low profile tires and wheels. Optional were 20-inch lower profile tires and wheels.
The 2008, 2011 and 2012 (and 2016 Impala Limited LTZ) had 18-inch wheels and tires - with a higher sidewall.
The wheels on my 2014 Impala (new model) have been damaged by the miserable paved roads in the county that I live in the Midwest. In retrospect, I would never buy another Impala with the low-profile tires and wheels (or any other vehicle).
If you are driving on dirt or gravel roads and are concerned about your wheels and sidewalls, you may want to steer clear of the new model style with the 19 or 20 inch wheels and tires. Lesser trim lines (LT, LS) had 18-inch wheels and tires, with higher tire sidewalls.
The 2014 (new model) is very comfortable and has a lot of legroom for the front seats AND the back seats. The previous model (including the 2016 Impala Limited) has good front seat leg room, but dismal rear seat legroom.
