TCC’s Bottom Line

An excellent chassis and a nice interior mean the LaCrosse should be on your shopping list. At the low end, it represents an excellent value and should be on any full-size sedan buyer's shopping list. The 2017 Chevrolet Impala hits the big-car target with handsome lines, composed handling, and on-point connectivity. The 2017 Toyota Avalon gives the full-size sedan a good name, with its exceptional space and style.
