Cars.com, the pre­mier online resource for buy­ing and sell­ing new and used cars, has named the all-new 2014 Chevro­let Impala the win­ner of the site’s Full Size Sedan Chal­lenge. The chal­lenge put sev­en sedans against each oth­er in a series of exten­sive expert and con­sumer test­ing to deter­mine which car deserved the title as best over­all full size sedan. In addi­tion to the 2014 Chevro­let Impala, oth­er full size sedans test­ed include the 2013 Chrysler 300, 2013 Dodge Charg­er, 2014 Ford Tau­rus, 2013 Hyundai Azera, 2013 Nis­san Max­i­ma and 2013 Toy­ota Aval­on.

“Of the sev­en sedans we test­ed, three were com­plete redesigns,” said Patrick Olsen, Cars.com’s Edi­tor-in-Chief. In addi­tion to the ful­ly redesigned and top-plac­ing Chevro­let Impala, the Toy­ota Aval­on and Hyundai Azera were also entrants with sub­stan­tial makeovers.

“The Impala, which saw the most dras­tic redesign of them all, blew us all away with its styl­ish looks and impres­sive dri­vabil­i­ty. In all hon­esty, this redesign brought the Impala from one of the less desir­able full size options to the absolute best in the class,” said Olsen.

Experts from Cars.com, USA Today, Motor­Week and a con­sumer who rep­re­sents the aver­age full size sedan shop­per test­ed the sev­en sedans for over­all fea­tures, com­fort, dri­ving abil­i­ty and fuel mileage.

Tests includ­ed:

  • 200 miles of dri­ving on vary­ing roads to test each sedan for real-world fuel econ­o­my.
  • One day of round-robin dri­ving where each expert test­ed each sedan on the same route back-to-back to gath­er impres­sions.
  • Test­ing by a car shop­per rep­re­sent­ing the aver­age full size sedan buy­er for over­all com­fort, fea­tures, styling and dri­vabil­i­ty.
