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.

The A8 feels substantially lighter than its big-sedan rivals-likely because of its aluminum construction-and can be hustled along a tight, curvy road at higher speeds than you might think; although competing models might have more horsepower, the 2010 Audi A8 has impressive passing ability.

The interior in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class looks more modern and sophisticated than that of the Audi A8, while the BMW 7-Series and Lexus LS 460 also stand out for offering high-tech features.

Both the 7-Series and S-Class have available night-vision systems and seats, and seating comfort in both of those vehicles is about as good as in the A8.

The Lexus LS 460 has an especially conservative look and feel, along with one of the most refined and isolated interiors, for those so inclined.

The newest Jaguar XJ ditches its antediluvian look and adopts a racy profile and a glossy high-tech sheen to its cabin.
