Chevrolet Impala Grabs Top Spot on Consumer Reports Top Sedans List

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.
