The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Chevrolet Impala is loaded with technology and handles better previous models, and it's better looking, too. The 2014 Nissan Maxima isn't the enthusiast car it claims to be, but it is a more luxurious, more stylish option than many of its competitors.
