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.

The Avenger's unique style really is its best attribute.

Otherwise, models like the Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima are more fuel-efficient, better-performing, and in most cases, more comfortable.

On the other hand, those models aren't offered with a V-6.

The Ford Fusion was all-new last year, and it's now a step beyond the Avenger in every conceivable way.

The Volkswagen Jetta is another value-oriented alternative to the Avenger, but its design is more cohesive, and its optional clean-diesel engine earns significantly better fuel economy.

The 2014 Kia Optima is a sensible and spacious four-door sedan, but it moonlights as something a little more stylish and adventuresome.

With a standout design; perky performance; great gas mileage; and exceptional value for the money, the 2013 Hyundai Sonata is one of the best buys among mid-size sedans.
