The Car Connection Makes Car Research Simpler, Faster With New Tools

June 19, 2013

The Car Connection brings you the latest automotive news and reviews every day, something we've been doing for the past 14 years. We've also developed some of the most user-friendly car-research tools on the Web.

Now, they're even a little easier to use.

New TCC Rating

As we enter peak car-buying season, we've relaunched our reviews section with a new design for our reviews and ratings. It's a cleaner look, with a more intuitive design.

We've also refreshed the look of our TCC Rating. Since 2008, we've rated each vehicle we review on a 10-point scale. Now, those ratings translate to a graphic that works like a gauge on your car: green means good, yellow means caution, and red means stop and pay attention.

We hope this gives you one more easy way to cut through the clutter of new-car reviews--a shortcut through the research phase, so you can get to the test drives you plan on your own.

New research tools

Finally, our new Decision Guide collects all the information we have on a single model, so you can do a few things all at once:

- See at a glance how a car scores in each rating category
- Scan quotes from other leading car research websites, without ever needing to leave the page
- View pricing across different body styles, trim levels, and option packages with a simple slider bar

Our editors have also created a new car tips and advice section, filled with buying guides, comparisons, vehicle recall information, and much more.

Whether it's a new or a used vehicle you're researching, our new tools are designed to speed up the process so you can get to the fun part--buying and owning your new car. We're continually improving these tools, so if you have ideas or feedback, we welcome it--just send us a tweet, or drop us a note at [email protected]
