Chevrolet Impala Grabs Top Spot on Consumer Reports Top Sedans List

New Impala scores big

I'm sure that a lot of people out there would agree that modern Chevrolet Impala sedans have been incredibly boring cars. These cars are more destined for rental fleets than the garages of your average American. However, the significantly redesigned Impala for 2014 recently scored better than all comers to win the top spot among all sedans from Consumer Reports.

The Impala scored 95/99 during the magazine tests placing it in the same realm as Lexus and Jaguar. Consumer Reports says that the new Impala is proof that GM is on the comeback. The older Impala that was replaced scored a scant 63 in the same testing.

The new Impala scored so well that only two vehicles are ahead of it in the Consumer Reports rankings. Those vehicles include the BMW 135i and the Tesla Model S. I still think the car is rather boring even if Consumer Reports likes it.

Video: World's Fastest Hearse now up to 1,300 hp, looking for more records

Filed under: Aftermarket, Motorsports, Wagon, Videos, Chevrolet, Specialty Unfortunately, for many people, a ride in the back of the hearse is the last chance they ever get to be in a car. In the case of "Madness" from AMS Performance, it could get folks to their final resting place faster than anything else around.

Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid First Drive: Huh—a Fun Plug-In SUV?

Oct 31 2014 11:10am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

If anyone predicted Porsche would be one of the brands leading the charge on plug-in hybrids back when Chevrolet launched the Volt in 2010—just as Porsche was debuting its first-ever production hybrid with the Cayenne—that person should be dealing futures on Wall Street. By replacing that SUV with this 2015 Cayenne S E-Hybrid plug-in, Porsche now has three plug-ins, more than any other carmaker. Of course, one of those three is the 918 Spyde ...
