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.

Both the Mercedes-Benz CL Class and SL Class models are quite close in size, space, and purpose to the 6-Series models, even though they're significantly more expensive than the BMWs.

While the new Mercedes cars—particularly the new SL, and the high-performance SL63 AMG that competes with the M6—offer more visual flair and drama, the BMW models feel as inspiring, capable, and well-equipped.

Those in search of more of a driver's car—without giving up too many of the creature comforts—should consider the Porsche 911.

Either in its Carrera (coupe) or Cabriolet (convertible) forms, the new 911 is surprisingly practical and competitive with the 6-Series in terms of price.

However you will end up sacrificing some comfort—as well as some of the 6-Series' advanced tech options.

Otherwise both the Jaguar XK and the Maserati GranTurismo offer comparable performance to the BMW, along with plush interiors and a perhaps slightly more exotic look and feel.

Those who like the new Gran Coupe will also want to take a look at the related Maserati Quattroporte, along with the Mercedes-Benz CLS and Audi A7.
