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.

One of the Mitsubishi Galant's top rivals is the Kia Optima.

Like the Galant, the Optima doesn't possess a lot of personality, but it's thoroughly competent.

Both vehicles place an emphasis on ride quality above driving dynamics.

The Chevrolet Malibu is an option that feels positively lavish next to the Galant, with a strong V-6 or four-cylinder and a beautiful, refined interior.

The Honda Accord remains at the top of the class, especially for those who value interior appointments and a premium, luxurious feel.

And for those who enjoy driving a bit more, the Nissan Altima has a sportier feel, with more overt styling and better handling.

The 2010 Mitsubishi Galant is adequate in most respects—and surprisingly comfortable. But it's not exciting or class-leading in any way.

TCC Rating
The 2010 Chevrolet Malibu remains one of the strongest players in the mid-size sedan segments, though its rivals are certainly worth a look.

TCC Rating
Honda hasn’t changed much about the Accord, and that’s a good thing. In base four-cylinder form, the 2010 Honda Accord feels sophisticated beyond its price range, and even as a $30,000 coupe or sedan, the top V-6 models offer compelling refinement, performance, and luxury.

TCC Rating
The 2010 Kia Optima doesn’t have the excitement of its newest small cars, the Soul and Forte, but it does have strong appeal based in practical attributes like interior space, comfort, and value for the money.

TCC Rating
The 2010 Nissan Altima remains one of the sportier choices among mid-size sedans, though if interior space matters, it might not feel as roomy as rivals.
