The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.4
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 Toyota Avalon is far more youthful than it used to be, with a more responsive, sophisticated personality, an excellent interior, and a 40-mpg Hybrid version -- plus of course top-notch comfort all around.
