TCC Rating
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 2011 Lexus IS 350 and IS 350 look and drive like sport sedans, but they're not as performance-oriented as sport sedans from BMW or Infiniti. The 2011 Infiniti G Sedans remain one of the top choices driving enthusiasts willing to sacrifice a little comfort for responsiveness and poise.
