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 If you want a well-finished interior, plenty of power, and luxury-car ambiance all around—but you can do without the brand cachet—the 2014 Hyundai Genesis could add up as a good value. The 2014 Lexus ES is an attractive package in its segment, and the hybrid model makes for a very compelling alternative to more expensive green luxury cars.
