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 2010 Dodge Charger doesn’t have any direct competition from its fellow domestic brands, but it's hard to look past some foreign rivals like the Hyundai Genesis.

If rear-wheel drive is not a must, the Ford Taurus and Chevrolet Impala are both worthy rivals, though their performance is a little blander than the muscle-car-inspired Charger.

The Taurus SHO is a completely different beast thanks to its powerful EcoBoost V-6 engine and all-wheel-drive layout, but it’s rather expensive when compared to the Charger.

The Hyundai Genesis is probably the closest in terms of overall performance, especially in V-8 guise, but its luxury overtones and slightly higher price put it into another league.

The Nissan Maxima offers decent performance for a V-6 sedan, and its styling, inside and out, is eye-catching and sporty.

The 2010 Nissan Maxima might look like a sport sedan, but it lacks the edgy, high-performance feel necessary to complete the package.
