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 new 2010 Lexus HS 250h packs some noteworthy technology features, though those expecting either Prius fuel economy figures or a sportier driving experience might be disappointed. The 2010 Toyota Prius ups the ante in the hybrid world with 51-mpg city fuel economy and a finer style.
