Cars.com Holds Full-Size Sedan Challenge
Full-size sedans only accounted for 3.5 percent of new car sales through the first seven months of 2013, but despite their relatively insignificant market impact, automakers put a lot of effort and money into redesigning and marketing them.

Ford and Toyota completely redesigned their full-size sedans for the new model year, but Ford only sells one full-size Taurus for every 3.6 midsize Fusions, and Toyota sells just one Avalon for every 5.6 Camry’s. This phenomenon has carmakers competing for a very small amount of the same buyers, which has seriously heated up competition. Cars.com went on a quest to find the best full-size sedan in its $38,000 Full-Size Sedan Challenge. Below is their top three.
3. 2013 Hyundai Azera – “It’s not often that a car can wear the adjectives ‘sexy, exciting and safe’ all at the same time,” said a Cars.com reviewer, “but somehow the Azera fits all these and more.” They also like the Azera’s extensive list of features.
2. 2013 Chrysler 300S – “The power and handling in the 300S is spot on,” said one reviewer. Another added, “The engine and eight-speed transmission work very well together.”
1. 2014 Chevrolet Impala 2LT – Cars.com loves the Camaro-reminiscent styling of the new Impala, as well as its handling and overall driving experience.
