2014 Chevy Impala Gets Valet Mode [Video]
Chevrolet has announced the 2014 Impala will be fitted with a Valet Mode system integrated into the MyLink console.
The system allows the owner to enter a personalized four-digit code into the system that locks his personal information before giving the car over to a valet. This ensure that when you pull up to a fancy restaurant, you can enjoy your meal without having to worry about somebody finding out your home address or other personal info.
There's also a storage compartment behind this optional MyLink system that allows you to hide valuables such as a phone or wallet. Potentially, you could use this to place items out of reach for potential thieves.
“Valet mode is the kind of feature that Impala customers will appreciate,” said Chris Perry, Chevrolet vice president of Global Marketing. “It is one of many great new features on our newest MyLink and a small part of Impala’s overall technology package.”
“We were able to move the MyLink system’s electronics to another location in the vehicle, effectively creating the space behind the touch screen,” said Matt Highstrom, General Motors human-machine interface designer.
