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.

For drivers who are moving up from an entry-level high-end sedan, the 2007 Acura RL is just one of many options.

In general, the V-6 engine and all-wheel drive aren't exactly matched elsewhere; other manufacturers offer an available V-8 but don’t necessarily include all-wheel drive.

Most rivals employ rear-wheel drive, although the RL stands as surprisingly sporty in feel in comparison.

The RL does have a few practical advantages as well―namely, top reliability scores and resale values, making it a great choice for long-term ownership.

The 2007 Acura RL is a top-notch luxury sedan that’s sportier than its conservative exterior might indicate, yet those who want to be seen―or have a V-8 under the hood―should look elsewhere.

The 2008 Audi A6 has plenty of competition, but its graceful look and feel set it apart from more brutal German and more clinical Japanese iron.
