2014 Chevrolet Impala – Named the Best of 2014 by Cars.com, for its improved performance and power, luxurious interior, top-of-the-line technology and value for price. “Once a bland sedan, the new Impala is not only the best in its class, but our top pick out of all brand-new 2014 models. The 2014 Impala is a truly transformed car,” said Patrick Olsen, Cars.com’s Editor-in-Chief. Other nominees for the top award included the Acura MDX, Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia Forte, Mazda3 and Mazda6.
2014 Acura MDX – This luxury sport utility vehicle received the 2014 AutoGuide.com Utility Vehicle of the Year Award for its levels of luxury comfort and quietness, dynamic performance, class-leading fuel-economy ratings, and advanced safety and technology features. The 2014 MDX has also earned the highest available collision safety rating of TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
