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.

For shoppers looking for this type of car, ride comfort, a quiet cabin, and more traditional luxury features rank above all else.

The Toyota Avalon is probably the Azera’s top rival; it has an enviable reputation for quality and strikes a slightly better compromise between ride and handling.

Then there’s the all-new Buick LaCrosse, which steps away from absolute comfort toward a slightly sportier character overall.

The Buick also offers more tech features in addition to those traditional luxury-sedan extras.

The Ford Taurus rides quite well and, with a 2010 redesign, has become more of a performance sedan, but it’s still comfortable inside.

Those planning to carry adults in the backseat should be aware that Ford reduced rear headroom in redesigning the Taurus.

The Chevrolet Impala is another alternative, but the Impala feels decidedly behind the times, with decade-ago levels of refinement and obsolete-looking interior appointments.

Spacious, handsome, and unremittingly conservative, the 2011 Hyundai Azera is a great alternative for folks who think the company's Sonata is a bit risque.

It's big and reasonably priced, but the 2011 Chevrolet Impala can't match other full-sizers on sex appeal or high-tech features.

The 2011 Ford Taurus isn’t quite a game-changing sedan, but it's a handsome, solid, high-quality choice.

The 2011 Toyota Avalon is at once traditional and modern, with a classy, comfortable luxury-car look and feel combined with top-notch safety and a great feature set.
