TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Chevrolet Impala adds better base equipment this year for good value among full-sizers. The 2017 Hyundai Azera has near-luxury features and style, and a full-size back seat. The 2018 Toyota Avalon is a spacious full-size sedan that prioritizes comfort and safety above keeping up with the Joneses.
