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 2015 Subaru Legacy remains one of the few models in its class to widely offer all-wheel drive.

Chrysler offers AWD on its 2015 200 sedan, but the 200 has a cramped back seat and lower gas mileage than the Legacy.

The Honda Accord and Nissan Altima remain somewhat sporty but very much mainstream entries, with roomy back seats, smooth rides, and refined cabins.

The Accord is also this year offered in Hybrid form.

We like the Ford Fusion for its sophisticated feel behind the wheel, and for its design and cabin appointments, which feel a price class above.

The Mazda6 is probably our choice for best-driving in this class, but it has what, until this year, has been a major handicap for Subaru—sluggish, primitive infotainment systems.

The 2015 Subaru Legacy smooths over its ruffles, and out-domestics some American family sedans with a big back seat, excellent gas mileage and standard all-wheel drive.

The 2015 Chrysler 200 can fetch a premium for its style and its horsepower--but rear-seat room and handling are better bargains elsewhere.

TCC Rating
The 2014 Ford Fusion has stunning good looks, satisfying performance, and top-notch safety and fuel economy--all without skimping on the interior space and ride comfort that really means something to mid-size sedan shoppers.

The 2014 Honda Accord keeps with this model's super-sensible reputation; but with accessible safety technology, great fuel economy, and unparalleled composure, the affordable models in the lineup are better deals than they've ever been.

The 2014 Mazda 6 is a beauty, with refined, perky powertrains and a driving experience that mostly delivers on what the exterior suggests.

Following improvements that hit all the right spots, the 2014 Nissan Altima is a solid choice for those who don't mind a CVT.
