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.

Looking at these competitors, there's not a bad choice here.

Compared to the 2009 Mazda6, the Toyota Camry rides more softly.

It is the "Buick" of this group.

The Honda Accord and Nissan Altima are close to the Mazda6 dynamically, but the Mazda is sportier still than the Accord (especially inside), and you must like continuously variable transmissions (CVTs) to fall in love with the Altima.

Hyundai's Sonata is a solid choice backed by a long warranty, while the Chevrolet Malibu continues to win over buyers with its styling and technology (Chevy offers a Hybrid model and a six-speed automatic with their four-cylinder).
