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.

Today, big sedans are less like land barges and more closely related to their mid-size, more popular family-sedan siblings.

The Impala shares most of its underpinnings with the Buick LaCrosse, but the LaCrosse offers more options, a nicer cabin, and less interior space.

There's also the Hyundai Azera, which is stylish, drives well, offers tons of leg room, and ample technology.

The Ford Taurus feels smaller inside comes with the challenge of dealing with MyFordTouch.

The Nissan Maxima has an average interior and surprising performance, though it can be hindered by the continuously-variable transmission.

And, there's the Toyota Avalon, which feels more upscale than the Impala in many ways, but lacks the planted drive feel.

The 2015 Chevrolet Impala is loaded with technology and handles better previous models, and it's better looking, too.

The Buick LaCrosse is both supremely comfortable and excellent on gas, but we'd point you to the Premium versions if you're seriously considering one.

The 2015 Ford Taurus feels lacking in the rear-seat department, but otherwise proves to be a comfortable, high-tech flagship sedan for the brand.

The 2014 Hyundai Azera is a big, comfortable sedan that offers serious design appeal and a luxury-car ambiance.

The 2014 Nissan Maxima isn't the enthusiast car it claims to be, but it is a more luxurious, more stylish option than many of its competitors.

TCC Rating
The 2014 Toyota Avalon is far more youthful than it used to be, with a more responsive, sophisticated personality, an excellent interior, and a 40-mpg Hybrid version -- plus of course top-notch comfort all around.
