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.

TCC's Bottom Line The 2014 Hyundai Equus gets even closer to what discerning luxury-car shoppers want—even if it still doesn't have the cachet. The 2015 Kia K900 reaches for the luxury stars--and grabs a little Lexus and old-school Cadillac, though it falls well short of Audi. The Lexus LS is all about build quality and comfort for the long-haul, though its F Sport trim dials up the fun factor slightly.
