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.

In this group, the Kia Sedona has now gone the longest since a full redesign, and it shows.

The Sedona is a strong value, with strong safety, but its handling and refinement is a step behind rivals.

So is its options list.

The Grand Caravan (and its nearly identical sibling, the Chrysler Town & Country) have some innovative seating arrangements, as well as class-leading entertainment features of their own, like satellite TV, and performance from the new 4.0-liter V-6 is strong, but their interiors are a little cheap feeling compared to the Odyssey and Sienna.

The Sienna offers just as much luxury as the Odyssey, along with a comfortable, quiet interior�as well as better straight-line performance�but it doesn't handle as well as the Odyssey and its seating arrangement isn't as handy as those of Chrysler or Honda.

The Toyota has one advantage, though: It's now offered in a slightly more economical (and less expensive) four-cylinder variant.

Of the non-luxury-brand minivans, the 2011 Honda Odyssey remains the priciest, at several thousand dollars more than these other vans, in comparable trim, while the Touring and Touring Elite models are nearly as expensive as vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz R-Class and Lincoln MKT.

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.

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.
