2013 Chevrolet Impala vs. Its Competition

2013 Chevrolet Impala
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Impala's competition is heating up, so unless you're content with the Chevy's shape and price, take a look at the newest Azera and Taurus--or the new Avalon due this summer.

The new Impala, by the way, is on sale early next year as a 2014 model.

Quick Specs
6.6
Dated in styling, safety, and comfort, the 2013 Chevrolet Impala still earns credit for interior space, highway gas mileage, and low prices.
8.2
The 2013 Buick LaCrosse hits the mark for comfort, sophistication, and refinement in a large sedan—and its 36-mpg rating is icing on the cake.
8.4
The image-building 2013 Chrysler 300 is handsome and classy, as well as a proper luxury car or a scorching muscle sedan.
8.0
The 2013 Ford Taurus gets improved performance and is more of a technology and luxury flagship than ever--although its 'smaller inside' packaging continues to limit its appeal.
8.6
The 2013 Hyundai Azera is still a good value, but now it offers real design appeal, confident performance, and a true luxury-car ambiance.
8.4
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.
