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 breadth of today's 6-Series lineup draws competitors from all over the premium map.

Gran Coupes are spiritual kin with cars like the Audi A7, which gets a powerful RS 7 edition for the 2014 model year.

We'd even draw comparisons with the two-door Maserati GranTurismo, since its rear seats are more usable than most grand-touring coupes, even though it has two fewer doors.

The 6-Series Coupe and Convertible have the Jaguar XK clearly in their sights: the XK weighs less and comes across as more elegant, with fewer advanced technologies in its playbook.

The Mercedes-Benz SL Class is quite close in size, space, and purpose to the 6-Series models, even though it's significantly more expensive than the BMW, at least in some configurations.

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.

The basic 2014 Audi A7 is gorgeous, yes--but you'll swoon from the heady mix of raw sex appeal and torrid performance in the S7 and RS 7.
