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.

The mid-size sedan segment is the most popular and hotly contested in the United States.

Even though the 2008 Hyundai Sonata was redesigned and introduced as an all-new 2006 model, it is tied for being the oldest in this group.

(The Ford Fusion was also introduced in 2006, the Nissan and Toyota in 2007, and the Honda in 2008.)

The 2009 Toyota Camry remains one of the best choices for those looking for a reliable and roomy—albeit plainly dressed—family sedan.
