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.

Based on Chrysler’s far more style- and design-oriented approach to the new 200, this mid-size sedan will likely no longer be sold primarily on value, features, and sticker price, but on look and feel—as well as performance, efficiency, refinement, and comfort.

But its competitive set is particularly tough and up to the task.

The Ford Fusion was completely redesigned a couple of years ago and still stands as one of the most sophisticated models in this class—feeling like a premium car in many respects.

The Kia Optima is now one of the older designs in this group, but it still stands out and has a good list of features for the money.

Otherwise the Volkswagen Passat is one of the most comfortable offerings here, and it has available high-mileage diesel power (the Fusion, Optima, and Accord are offered as hybrids).

The Honda Accord appeals more on interior space and comfort and has a more traditional look, but it’s one of the best-riding, best-performing cars here; and like the Chrysler 200, it offers an available V-6.

The Chevrolet Malibu stands in contrast here as the plainest entry in the group; its no-nonsense look and feel remind us of what the rest of the segment was like just five years ago.

The Chrysler 200’s nine-speed automatic transmission will likely be a strong selling point as it should enable strong acceleration as well as some of the segments higher (for the power) fuel economy ratings.

The 2015 Volkswagen Passat provides a refreshing alternative to the usual mid-sizers, offering a huge interior and the segment's only diesel engine option.
