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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

There are few minivans, crossovers, or SUVs that drive as well as the sporty Mazda5.

Even the short-wheelbase 2009 Kia Sedona is larger than the Mazda5.

If you don't mind a peppy four-cylinder engine, then the Mazda5 is worth a test drive.

The Toyota Sienna matches the Honda Odyssey in terms of refinement, polish, and price.

However, the Sienna doesn't drive with the same enthusiastic personality as the Honda or the Mazda5.

If you're shopping around but know you want a refined, high-quality driving experience, then the Honda Odyssey is the minivan for you.

The base Honda will be thousands of dollars more expensive than the least expensive Kia, so be prepared.

For those responsible for keeping kids happy while on the road, the vast number of features on the all-new Dodge Caravan makes this minivan a standout achiever.

The Dodge also offers in-floor storage and seating options not available on the Kia.

Of the available minivans, the 2009 Kia Sedona is one of the most affordable, but it doesn't skimp on what counts for families.

The 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan is loaded with practical features that families on the go will use and appreciate, but it’s not the most luxurious minivan out there.

Provided you don't expect too much of a zoom-zoom feel, the 2008 Mazda Mazda5 is one of the few good choices for buyers looking for minivan spaciousness in a vehicle that's especially fuel-efficient and maneuverable.

The 2008 Toyota Sienna minivan does almost everything right for the family, with a roomy, functional interior and great ride comfort, but there’s not a lot of personality.
