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 2015 Hyundai Sonata is the model that helped Hyundai find its mainstream appeal in the U.S.; yet it's by no means the king of the hill, as it competes with some of the best-selling passenger cars—the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord.

The Accord remains very much a Honda in driving feel, even though it's quite a large vehicle now.

Meanwhile Toyota tries to do better with a thorough mid-cycle revamp that includes an extensive re-engineering for 2015, plus new cabin appointments and a sportier emphasis.

For sporty driving characteristics, the Mazda 6 is at the top; its road manners help make up for a few feature inadequacies.

The Fusion remains one of the boldest designs on the market, and with several different turbocharged engines and a Fusion Hybrid, it's the lineup with the most choice.

The Kia Optima, which is closely related to the Hyundai Sonata, also deserves a look; it's almost identical to the Sonata in powertrain and layout, but it somehow handles better, and its sleeker, Euro-influenced styling aims for a very different crowd.

The 2015 Subaru Legacy smooths over its ruffles, and out-domestics some American family sedans with a big back seat, excellent gas mileage and standard all-wheel drive.
The 2015 Toyota Camry ups its game with a thorough refresh that should make it more enjoyable as driver or passenger.
