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.

The Toyota Avalon is a good choice for those who value comfort above all else; it offers the most features in the class and especially rich, impressive materials inside.

The Azera is another good, comfortable large sedan, and it's a strong value.

In terms of safety, the Ford Taurus is the champion, with enviable crash-test results and a Volvo-enhanced platform, but like the Impala, it's not especially distinctive or fun to drive.

Next to the competition, the Impala doesn't particularly stand out for safety.

The Dodge Charger is the sportiest and gets the most attention in the affordable large-sedan class, but its rear seat is smaller than the Impala’s, and with rear-wheel drive, it's arguably not as practical.

However, the Charger R/T has a better-rounded performance-driving experience.

Even GM's own Buick LaCrosse—which isn't priced that much higher than the Impala at the base level—trumps the Impala, especially in styling.
