The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Chevrolet Impala is loaded with technology and handles better previous models, and it's better looking, too. The Buick LaCrosse is both supremely comfortable and excellent on gas, but we'd point you to the Premium versions if you're seriously considering one.
