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 2013 Toyota Avalon is more responsive and sophisticated than ever before, without giving up any comfort; and in the new Avalon Hybrid, 40 mpg has never been so serene.
