Today, big sedans are less like land barges and more closely related to their mid-size, more popular family-sedan siblings.
The Impala shares most of its underpinnings with the Buick LaCrosse, but the LaCrosse offers more options, a nicer cabin, and less interior space.
There's also the Hyundai Azera, which is stylish, drives well, offers tons of leg room, and ample technology.
The Ford Taurus feels smaller inside comes with the challenge of dealing with MyFordTouch.
The Nissan Maxima has an average interior and surprising performance, though it can be hindered by the continuously-variable transmission.
And, there's the Toyota Avalon, which feels more upscale than the Impala in many ways, but lacks the planted drive feel.
