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 2010 BMW 5-Series Gran Turismo is a unique vehicle with few clear competitors.

Chief among them is BMW's own X6 crossover, which rides higher and has a more athletic and, conversely, a more rugged stance.

It's aimed at SUV-lite fans, while the Gran Turismo is akin to the Lincoln MKT or Mercedes-Benz R-Class.

The MKT is a seven-seater, but like the BMW GT, it offers a stellar level of second-row comfort and adds a third-row seat and supercharged V-6 performance to its compelling style.

The Audi A6 Avant is one of the more, well, avant-garde wagons on the market, with a sleeker silhouette than the norm, a standard bench for its second-row of seats, and options for all-wheel drive and V-8 power.

The Gran Turismo's most direct rival might be the slow-selling Mercedes-Benz R-Class, based on second-row comfort, but the R-Class offers a third-row seat that stretches its proportions to ungainly lengths.

The 2008 Audi A6 has plenty of competition, but its graceful look and feel set it apart from more brutal German and more clinical Japanese iron.

If you seek a supremely comfortable people hauler but eschew traditional station wagons, minivans, and SUVs, the 2008 Mercedes-Benz R-Class may be for you.
