The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.6
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 Nissan Maxima isn't the enthusiast car it claims to be, but it is a more luxurious, more stylish option than many of its competitors.
