TCC Rating
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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

The Impala plays second fiddle to a host of full-size sedans with newer shapes and features.

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; it's also as daring as the Chrysler 300, which has been significantly revamped this year with a beautiful interior and a better base powertrain.

It's big and reasonably priced, but the 2011 Chevrolet Impala can't match other full-sizers on sex appeal or high-tech features.

A riper, more mature Chrysler 300 renews our faith in restrained American styling--and in big V-8, rear-drive fun.

The 2011 Ford Taurus isn’t quite a game-changing sedan, but it's a handsome, solid, high-quality choice.

Spacious, handsome, and unremittingly conservative, the 2011 Hyundai Azera is a great alternative for folks who think the company's Sonata is a bit risque.

The 2011 Toyota Avalon is at once traditional and modern, with a classy, comfortable luxury-car look and feel combined with top-notch safety and a great feature set.
