Consumer Reports magazine is one of the most trusted names in the consumer advocacy industry. So, it tends to be that when they speak, the people listen. Recently, the group announced that the 2014 Chevrolet Impala received the company’s top testing score and is the best sedan in the United States.
This is the first time in two decades that an American sedan has won this distinction from Consumer Reports. The magazine bases its scores on, among others, ride quality, handling and quality of materials. The Impala received a score of 95 out of a possible 100 points, giving it an “Excellent” rating from the magazine. It even outscored luxury competitors, such as the Lexus LS460 and the Audi A6.
Tom Mutchler of Consumer Reports said, “It rides like a luxury sedan, cushy and yet controlled. At the same time, acceleration is quick and handling and it is surprisingly agile for such a large sedan.”
The 2014 Impala has been completely redesigned. It has an affordable starting price around $27,000.
