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.

This crowded segment includes two German competitors that also offer station-wagon versions with similar options, including all-wheel drive.

The Japanese competitors from Lexus and Infiniti put their emphasis instead on V-8 power and technology, with the Lexus GS also being made in a Hybrid model.

The Cadillac STS sports angular, American style and big V-8 power, and it offers all-wheel drive, while Jaguar's slinky new XF sedan comes only with V-8 power, supercharged or not, and a glamorous, cutting-edge interior.
