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.

The 2013 Audi A6 and S7 family goes up against a wide range of models, from rather staid and traditional to high-performance.

Models such as the Mercedes-Benz E Class and BMW 5-Series offer just as wide of a lineup, and the E-Class is offered both in clean-diesel and hybrid models.

The Infiniti M is the fabulous looker of this pack; V-6 versions are a little too throaty for our tastes, but the rear-driver's handling is brilliant and its tech features equal those on the Audi.

The Chrysler 300 is an intriguing alternative, with arguably better handling than the A6, available all-wheel drive, and a smoking SRT8 performance version.

Some might think of the Lincoln MKS as an odd one for this list, but it's quite distinctive, roomy inside, and very safe.

Plus, EcoBoost versions of the MKS are very quick.

The 2013 Lincoln MKS steers away from both traditional American luxury and German sport sedans--and ends up in a good place for those who want a distinctive, well-rounded big sedan.

Better handling and interiors put the Mercedes-Benz E-Class back in benchmark status; a passel of new engines brings fuel economy to new heights.
