The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
It took a while to get here, but the 2014 Chevy Impala fast-forwards over the past with fine handling and even better styling. Great on gas or long on comfort and refinement--the Buick LaCrosse can be either, though we'd steer you toward the premium editions.
