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 BMW 7-Series goes head-to-head with the Audi A8 and Mercedes-Benz S-Class, but each of these vehicles has a different personality.

The all-new S-Class leads the segment in luxury and technology now more than ever.

The Audi A8 is a swift, stable performer, though it has begun to look increasingly anonymous as years pass.

The Porsche Panamera is slightly smaller than the BMW, but it's significantly faster, especially in Turbo S guise.

Perhaps the most attractive vehicle in the segment is the Jaguar XJ, though its a little less functional inside than the 7er.

Finally the Aston Martin Rapide carries cachet in a way that's hard to compete with, despite its compromised rear seat.
