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.

Among $50,000 luxury sedans, we’re most impressed by the 2011 Infiniti M37 and M56.

Formerly anonymous, the M&Ms have ripened into major sex objects this year; the cabin’s subtly gorgeous and the V-8 has thundering power.

So is the V-6, but it's noisier and harsher than you’d expect.

The Jaguar XF is utterly captivating, inside and out, but the backseat is the smallest of all these cars, and early reliability hasn’t been stellar.

Both the E-Class and the 5-Series are reinvented this year; the E-Class’ shape is controversial, but handling’s improved and so are fit and finish.

Meanwhile, the 5-Series gets a much cleaner set of lines and better interior space as BMW junks most of the excesses of the Bangle era of design.

The 5-Series GT is specifically aimed at the Audi A6 Avant; its flexible cargo space borders on brilliance, though there’s a visual penalty to be paid in the form of a tall, heavy rear end.

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 new 2011 BMW 5-Series might be a conservative evolution in terms of styling and design, but it’s a quite radical one with regard to how BMW’s most important model drives.

The 2011 Jaguar XF offers a compelling combination of fast, nimble performance and a classy, refined, and seductive interior; the only thing lacking is backseat space.

The 2010 BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo hatch-wagon may puzzle some shoppers, but it knows how to entertain on the road and doesn't mind if you bring company.

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan swings to the masculine side of the pendulum and sharpens its driving appeal in the process.
