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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

If you're in the market for a real minivan, few vehicles can live up to your utility expectations.

The Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan certainly fit the bill--they're also less expensive, earn top safety scores, and have more advanced tech features than the Sienna.

The Honda Odyssey is just as large as the Sienna, but neither have the Chryslers' fold-away second-row seats--and to get Bluetooth and a six-speed automatic in the Honda, you'll spend up to $40,000.

The Nissan Quest is smaller and less flexible than any other minivan on the market save the compact Mazda5, but has the best handling of the bigger vans.

Finally, before you commit to sliding side doors, try something like a Ford Flex crossover, with cavernous interior space, class-leading infotainment features, and grabby styling.
