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 Audi A6 has a tremendous range of important, excellent sedans taking aim at it.

The revamped Mercedes E-Class has a smoother-over body and a wicked E63 AMG edition to go with its diesel and hybrid editions; the BMW 5-Series has almost as wide a range, with hybrid tech coming later this year as well as diesels.

The Infiniti Q70 (nee M sedan) 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.

Finally, there's a brand-new Cadillac CTS sedan on the way for the fall, with tuxedo-perfect sheetmetal and the promise of handling as sharp as that in the excellent ATS compact.

Brilliance takes many forms in the Audi A6: the diesel-driven TDI, the supercharged A6, or the turbocharged S6 all stand out in ways the sedate body doesn't quite match.

The 2014 BMW 5-Series is simultaneously a classic sport sedan and a technology-packed grand tourer.

The 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan scales up the ATS' handsome profile and spot-on handling, and tops it off with a winning Vsport edition.

The Chrysler 300 is loaded with comfort and technology features, and it comes as either a near-luxury sedan, or an monstrously powerful muscle car.

The 2014 Infiniti Q70 sedan range is fast, fun-to-drive, better to look at, and comfortable--a world-class combination.

What, me worry? The Mercedes-Benz E-Class reasserts its alpha status with a tighter forehead, a greener turbodiesel, and a pair of all-wheel-drive AMGs.
