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.

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.

The Jaguar XKR-S and XKR-R, while not quite as expensive or exclusive as the Aston Martin Vanquish, offer much of the same style and grand-touring appeal--and potentially even more performance.

Porsche's 911 is much the same as the Jaguar XK line in this regard, though at the pointy end, the 911 Turbo S and discontinued GT2 far exceed the Vanquish's performance for a much lower price tag--though it forgoes the bespoke element.

Ferrari's F12 Berlinetta is perhaps the Vanquish's most natural competition, itself a potent V-12-powered grand tourer with elegance and luxury in excess.

The Lamborghini Aventador is another similar formula, though its violent nature and compact cockpit make it substantially less comfortable.
