How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

TCC's Bottom Line The 2009 Hyundai Azera is somewhat limited in its mission, but it does it well. If interior space and a cushy ride are priorities, the Azera should be on your shortlist. The 2008 Mercury Sable has great interior room and trunk space, comprehensive safety gear, and large instrumentation, but falls behind the Honda Accord in driving excitement.
