Welcome to another edition of family car compare, where we stack up two competing models and see how they compare to each other, using the models' ratings from our parent site, The Car Connection. Today, we're pairing the 2010 Ford Taurus and 2010 Chevrolet Impala.
At first glance, the two might not seem like a natural pair. But the Impala and Taurus are both large, front-wheel drive sedans, and both offer lots of interior and cargo space. We acknowledge that these cars may not be cross-shopped all that often, but there are more similarities than you'd think. That didn't stop the outcome from being a bit lopsided. One note: Since Chevrolet has dropped the SS model of the Impala, we're going to exclude the hi-po Taurus SHO from this comparison, for the sake of fairness.
Here we go.
