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.

To give you an idea of how unique the Transit Connect is, consider the only other vehicles that bear some of the same traits.

On the passenger-car side, try the Honda Element--discontinued for the 2012 model year, but lined with plastic for easy clean-up, and outfitted with flip-and-fold seats to carry children as easily as it does pets and cargo.

On the commercial-vehicle side, the next step from a TC is something like the GMC Savana, a full-size van that comes in truly industrial-grade versions, and rolls on a dated truck-based chassis, with dynamics and safety features reflecting its age.

It's not as flexible as some minivans, but the 2012 Toyota Sienna is large, safe, and still has options for four-cylinder power and all-wheel drive.

It's less spacious and less flexible than before, but the 2012 Nissan Quest drives better than other minivans.

With its worst penalty-box trim neatly excised, the 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan is a high-functioning box on wheels.

The aging Kia Sedona still offers the usual minivan virtues of people-carrying and cargo-toting, but there are newer, more flexible, safer choices.
