Sedan: 2014 Chevrolet Impala

Canadian-made sedan boast muscular exterior styling, range of efficient engine options; safety tech both passive and active

Chevy’s largest sedan has more than a touch of Cadillac about it, continuing its mission as a prestige car for the average citizen. Whether its the sleek, muscular new exterior or the Caddy-style instrument cluster, the Impala is a machine that feels more expensive than it is. A much quieter interior is designed around an eight-inch central touchscreen display with Chevy’s MyLink system – four-cylinder models have active noise cancellation to make things smoother. Safety features range from forward collision alert to 10 standard airbags; available adaptive cruise control makes long-haul highway driving easy, even when the traffic starts building up.
