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 2015 Ford Taurus isn't quite as spacious inside as it looks like it would be from its exterior, and it faces some substantial heat from equally-excellent Toyota Avalon and Chevrolet Impala competitors.

The Impala–and even the Buick LaCrosse–look and feel more modern than the Taurus, though neither feel quite as peppy as the SHO model.

The Toyota Avalon offers a Hybrid variant, which earns as much as 40 MPG–something that won't be found in the Ford.

There's also the Hyundai Azera, which drives surprisingly well, and offers ample space for rear passengers.

The best competitor for the SHO is Chrysler's 300C, which feels like a relative hammer with its beefy performance–though the Ford feels more relaxed for long road trips.

The 2015 Ford Taurus feels lacking in the rear-seat department, but otherwise proves to be a comfortable, high-tech flagship sedan for the brand.

The Buick LaCrosse is both supremely comfortable and excellent on gas, but we'd point you to the Premium versions if you're seriously considering one.

The 2014 Nissan Maxima isn't the enthusiast car it claims to be, but it is a more luxurious, more stylish option than many of its competitors.
