4 Door Vette. — This Impala SS has been my highway attack vehicle. Returns 25mpg on regular and with enough room to stretch out. The sofa front lounge area should have been designed for transportation. At speed or in the corners she performs. The faster you run her the lower to the ground she gets, no wonder cops loved the C-9-1 Impalas.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Quiet giant

Cons: The only thing is the front seats need much bolstering.

1996 Chevrolet Impala 4 Dr SS Sedan Review
says:
Better pure driver than the Marauder for two reasons: Lots of low-end torque and better brakes. 96 model has floor shift, which is desirable for many, but the price for those looking for a driver 96 is zero cupholders, none, anywhere. For those seeking a driver rather than a collectable, go with the column shift 1994-1995 models. Very close call compared with the Marauder. Age of these vehicles can cause insurance hurdles, one reason Im going with a Marauder.

Power Ranked 2004 Mercury Marauder 4 Dr STD Sedan worse.
"Low end torque in the Impala fits better with the size and weight of the car. Chevy throttle is more linear, the Merc throttle is abnormally weighted toward the first bit of travel (the car mags call this throttle tip-in.)"
Handling Ranked 2004 Mercury Marauder 4 Dr STD Sedan worse.
"Handling is very close but the Impala has significantly better brakes. "
Looks/Style Ranked 2004 Mercury Marauder 4 Dr STD Sedan better.
"The bathtub styling of the Impala comes in second to the plain, but purposeful styling of the Merc. There is no advantage here that would change a Chevy Man into a Ford Man, but Ford is the winner here."
Front Seats Ranked 2004 Mercury Marauder 4 Dr STD Sedan better.
"Close call, perceived slightly better room, adjustability, and position in the Merc."
Back Seats Ranked 2004 Mercury Marauder 4 Dr STD Sedan better.
"Close to Even but had to make a choice. Impala windows didnt roll all the way down and are breakage-prone. Think Marauder back seat passengers would have a better experience."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2004 Mercury Marauder 4 Dr STD Sedan better.
"Made this call due to the deeper trunk in the Marauder. Probably would have called this one Even but I had to choose one way or the other."
Family Car Ranked 2004 Mercury Marauder 4 Dr STD Sedan better.
"The Marauder has more convenience features, such as friendlier gages, more driver position adjustability, and some cupholders. Other than that they are very close. Why are cupholders so important? Because no one wants to spill their stuff all over the interior of a special interest car, and no one wants to have to modify the originality of the car to create the cupholders. "
Value Ranked 2004 Mercury Marauder 4 Dr STD Sedan better.
"Prices on the Marauder are running about even with the Impalas, with the Impala older and harder to insure - not impossible, but more difficult. Really, this boils down to condition, mileage, originality, and option levels. I would have gladly bought either one but found the best value locally with a Marauder with desirable options and colors."
Would Buy Ranked 2004 Mercury Marauder 4 Dr STD Sedan better.
"Slightly better car all around but wow, a close competition. See comments on Value for details. If I had kept looking, since I was trying for a daily driver, I would have shifted toward a 1995 model Impala so that I would not have to modify the interior. Digital gages on the 95 would have been a reluctant compromise to live with."
