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.

Over the past decade, the level of innovation in minivans has slowed to a crawl, with several automakers (such as Ford) bowing out of the segment entirely to focus on building more crossovers.

Honda is the only brand offering a built-in vacuum or the split widescreen entertainment screen setup.

The Chrysler Town & Country and its nearly identical Dodge Grand Caravan sibling are the Odyssey's closest rivals, offering innovative seating options as well as class-leading entertainment features and good performance.

However, compared to the Odyssey and Toyota Sienna, the Chrysler/Dodge interior materials are lacking.

The Sienna has somewhat better acceleration, as well as comparable features and more available luxury items at a lower price, but it's a heavier-feeling vehicle that doesn't handle as well--and its seating setup simply isn't as handy nor as flexible as the Honda or Chrysler vans'.

The Lincoln MKT and Ford Flex aren't minivans, but they can be cross-shopped as a close alternative.

With wide-opening, front-hinged back doors, these large wagons also have three rows of seating and well-configured interiors--although they're not set up for cargo as well as the true vans and don't provide as much third-row comfort.

While the Kia Sedona recently returned to the market, it is unchanged compared to the also-ran model that went out of production in 2012.

If you're looking to make a statement while you shuffle the kids around, it's hard to beat the 2015 Ford Flex.

Not everyone loves the unique look of the MKT, but if it's your style there's plenty to like, including a muscular available turbo V-6, plenty of infotainment tech, and a comfortable, spacious interior.

The 2015 Toyota Sienna only lags behind its main competitors in seating flexibility and fuel economy, while a freshened interior and massaged exterior keep it at the forefront of minivan stylishness—if there is such a thing.
