The Impala plays second fiddle to a host of full-size sedans with newer shapes and features.
The Toyota Avalon is a good choice for those who value comfort above all else; it offers the most features in the class and especially rich, impressive materials inside.
The Azera is another good, comfortable large sedan, and it's a strong value.
In terms of safety, the Ford Taurus is the champion, with enviable crash-test results and a Volvo-enhanced platform; it's also as daring as the Chrysler 300, which has been significantly revamped this year with a beautiful interior and a better base powertrain.
