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.

Within this group, only the Buick Lucerne offers V-8 power.

However, the V-6 engines in these competitors nearly match the Northstar V-8, and the Ford and Mercury full-size sedans hook their V-6 to a six-speed automatic for added fuel savings.

Additionally, the Ford and Mercury offer the security of available all-wheel drive.

The Hyundai Azera is a surprisingly strong alternative to the big Buick and the Toyota Avalon, which also offers front-wheel drive and a large, powerful V-6.

It rides like a classic Cadillac, but the 2008 Buick Lucerne has a slightly more modern spin on the full-size sedan.

The 2008 Hyundai Azera gives the Korean automaker a legitimate full-size sedan, with plenty of power, features, and room, but not much excitement.

The 2008 Lexus ES 350 is a plush, soft-handling car that would make Buick proud--if Buick still built cars like this.
