The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
It's big and reasonably priced, but the 2011 Chevrolet Impala can't match other full-sizers on sex appeal or high-tech features. A riper, more mature Chrysler 300 renews our faith in restrained American styling--and in big V-8, rear-drive fun.
