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.

The 2014 Ford Fusion starts at a base price that's a bit higher than most of its rivals, and the price spread actually grows wider as you move up the trims.

If price is the real concern, the cheapest Nissan Altima might be a better bet; it's very comfortable and well-equipped in its base guise.

The Kia Optima and Hyundai Sonata are some of the best values otherwise, with great interior room and trend-setting lines; but artificial steering feel and too-firm rides can be letdowns considering their curvy looks.

The Chevy Malibu suffers from a small back seat, mediocre gas mileage and styling, though its cockpit looks good and its steering can be very crisp, depending on wheel and tire choice.

And the Honda Accord isn't so dramatically changed, but its infotainment has been brought more up to date and it has some clever features, like LaneWatch.

The new Mazda 6 might be the toughest rival for the Fusion.

The Mazda is definitely less expensive and has a lean and sporty yet polished feel that might like what they see in the Fusion but are scared away by the price and technology.

Chevy has taken a look elsewhere in its lineup, and in the market, and made the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu a stronger offering--with an emphasis on better gas mileage and more space.

The 2014 Honda Accord keeps with this model's super-sensible reputation; but with accessible safety technology, great fuel economy, and unparalleled composure, the affordable models in the lineup are better deals than they've ever been.

The 2014 Hyundai Sonata remains one of the best buys among mid-size sedans--although with so many much-improved rival models, it's no longer such a standout.

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

Following improvements that hit all the right spots, the 2014 Nissan Altima is a solid choice for those who don't mind a CVT.
