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 Nissan Quest is no longer in the flexibility ballgame with the Chrysler minivans--and with the Kia Sedona taking the 2013 model year off, it's now the least reconfigurable minivan on the market.

That leaves plenty of options for savvy minivan buyers, starting with the trio of Chrysler minivans, which includes the Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan, as well as the badge-engineered VW Routan.

All share a V-6 engine and six-speed automatic; safety options differ, but crash scores are excellent and the third-row seat tucks away for a flatter load floor.

The Sienna has all-wheel drive on its options list, giving it a broader appeal, along with great safety scores.

Honda's Odyssey has a stylish appeal outside, and vast interior room, but to get Bluetooth and a six-speed automatic, you'll spend nearly $40,000.

Top safety scores and spaciousness are in place, even if the VW Routan doesn't have all the same utility and tech options of the related Chrysler minivans.
