Going through my morning ritual of browsing Jalopnik, I came across an interesting article about how Consumer Reports says the 2014 Chevy Impala is the best sedan they've tested. I didn't expect the new Impala to be that good, but if Consumer Reports is impressed with the new Impala...what do you guys think they will think of the SS? Will they be just as impressed?

1st Gear: Consumer Reports Loves The New Impala
While they don't love it as much as they love the Tesla Model S, which they call an "ultra luxury hatchback," Consumer Reports today announced that they seriously heart the 2014 Chevy Impala
They like it enough to give the new near-full-sized sedan 95 points, putting it third behind the BMW 1-Series and Model S. This makes it the highest-scoring sedan ever and the first domestic car to top the best sedan rankings in 20 years.
This shouldn't be too much of a surprise as we called it Pretty **** Good.".
It's not actually "Recommended" yet because there's no reliability data, but it's a win for Chevy.
I was busting Jake Fisher at CR Auto's half-shaded-in Harvey Balls this morning about it, but he had a pretty good response:
No it's not exciting - it just is a very well rounded car. It's really a luxury car - but it actually handles well and accelerates and brakes better than a GTI While it earns the high rating, it doesn't mean that it's the best car for everyone. Personally, I would chose something sportier even if it gives up something in terms of ride and rear seat comfort.
