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.
The Ford Taurus feels smaller inside comes with the challenge of dealing with MyFord Touch.
There's also the Hyundai Azera, which is stylish, drives well, offers tons of leg room, and ample technology.
The Toyota Avalon feels more upscale than the Impala in many ways, but lacks the planted drive feel.
Finally, the new Nissan Maxima is on par with the Impala for agility; its styling is even more daring, but we'd take GM's conventional six-speed over Nissan's CVT any day.
