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.

Of course the best-selling Camry is one of the Accord's top rivals; the Camry is competitive with the Accord in most respects, but its ride is more comfort-oriented and less sporty, and the quality of the interior materials is disappointing relative to the competition.

Perhaps the closest competitor to the Accord is the Altima, which provides a similar mix of sporty road manners and well-controlled ride quality, plus good styling inside and out.

The Ford Fusion competes with the sportier side of the Accord; it’s been greatly improved for 2010, thanks to a refined new base engine.

And as with the Honda, you can get the Fusion with a manual transmission.

However, the Fusion is a bit smaller.

Another top rival is the Chevrolet Malibu, which has a beautiful interior and comfortable ride but doesn’t feel quite as nimble.

Versus the Honda Accord Coupe, the only serious rival is the Nissan Altima Coupe.

Compared to the Honda, the Nissan feels a little bit sportier but also quite a bit less refined, as well as more cramped inside.

The 2011 Toyota Camry isn’t at the leading edge in any way, but it remains one of the smartest mid-size sedan picks.
