The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Dated in styling, safety, and comfort, the 2013 Chevrolet Impala still earns credit for interior space, highway gas mileage, and low prices. The 2013 Toyota Avalon is more responsive and sophisticated than ever before, without giving up any comfort; and in the new Avalon Hybrid, 40 mpg has never been so serene.
