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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

Buying a larger entry-level premium sedan offers a taste of power and style-two areas where the Acura RL comes up a bit short.

The Cadillac STS offers a sharper look, though it suffers from an even more crowded backseat than the RL.

The Volvo S80 is roomier and brighter inside, with Scandinavian styling and lighter handling.

Audi's A6 has an overworked front end to match the Acura, but a roomier backseat and a more coherent overall appearance.

TCC Rating
The 2010 Acura RL offers lots of features and strong safety. Performance takes a backseat in the 2010 RL-but technology and durability certainly don't.

The Audi A6 still has elegance and agility in its corner, though 0-60 mph times and rear-seat room continue to lag the competition.

The 2010 Cadillac STS drives well-the STS-V is a trailblazer-but the cramped backseat and well-worn styling haven't kept pace in the luxury class.

TCC Rating
Safety and comfort—and advanced tech features—never get short shrift in the 2010 Volvo S80, but not even a V-8 and all-wheel drive makes it a serious sport sedan.
