The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
It took a while to get here, but the 2014 Chevy Impala fast-forwards over the past with fine handling and even better styling. The 2014 Ford Taurus continues in its role of luxury and technology flagship for the Ford brand, but it remains compromised by its lack of rear-seat headroom and legroom
