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.

With several of the Dodge Grand Caravan's main rivals completely redesigned for 2011, Chrysler is barely keeping up in a class where it used to be the clear leader.

The Honda Odyssey has been completely redesigned for 2011, with a new seating layout that allows adult-size comfort in back, along with a new class-leading wide-screen entertainment system; it's also class-leading for fuel economy.

Also, the 2011 Toyota Sienna is all-new and while it feels heavier and more ponderous than the model it replaces it's so refined that it might as well have a Lexus badge.

For value, there's the Kia Sedona, which is due to be replaced but could be quite a bargain.

Also, Nissan's Quest will be all-new as a late entry for 2011, while the 2011 Ford Flex remains a wild-card alternative.

With MINI-esque styling and a seven-passenger interior, it would be called a minivan if it didn't have hinged doors.

The 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan is a high-functioning box on wheels—with the old penalty-box trim neatly excised, and a new powertrain spliced into place.

The 2011 Honda Odyssey remains the best-handling of the minivans, with some of the most innovative seating configurations and entertainment features, but it's also the priciest.

The 2011 Toyota Sienna adds room and adult-duty second-row seats, but leaves ultimate flexibility and entertainment to the competition.
