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.

The short-wheelbase (SWB) version of the Sedona is like no other minivan model currently offered in the United States.

Though its seating arrangement isn't as convenient as what's included in LWB models, the SWB Sedona maneuvers more easily, and it's an alternative to the smaller but more fuel-efficient Mazda5.

The Mazda5, however, handles better than the Sedona.

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

The Sienna doesn't drive with the same enthusiastic personality as the Honda, but it's due to be replaced for 2011.

If you're shopping around but 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.

But for those simply worried about keeping the family comfortable and occupying the kids while on the road, the Dodge Grand Caravan is one of the best choices, offering storage, seating, and entertainment options not found in the Sedona.

The 2010 Toyota Sienna is not going to win any awards for driving pleasure, but for what it is, a family hauler, it’s more than adequate.
