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.

A new Cadillac CTS, bigger and brasher, means a renewed clash of some luxury-car titans.

The CTS looks like it's gunning right for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which has variety in its corner--all kinds of body styles, from sedan to coupe to wagon to cabriolet, not to mention hybrid and diesel powertrains and a sizzling AMG edition.

The BMW 5-Series isn't far behind in its triple-threat status, though the latest M5 hasn't been as happily received as the past versions.

Audi's A6 (and the hatchback iteration, the A7) come in front- or all-wheel drive, wrapped in their own slinky style statement--and they're fitted with geeky stuff like in-car 3G connectivity and Google Earth mapping.

The Lexus GS has an F Sport that finally approaches the Germans for handling finesse, and Infiniti's M sedan has always impressed us with its balanced handling and its glamorous cabin--where else can you get wood trim polished with silver dust?

The 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan scales up the ATS' handsome profile and spot-on handling, and tops it off with a winning Vsport edition.

Brilliance takes many forms in the Audi A6: the diesel-driven TDI, the supercharged A6, or the turbocharged S6 all stand out in ways the sedate body doesn't quite match.

The 2014 BMW 5-Series is simultaneously a classic sport sedan and a technology-packed grand tourer.

The 2014 Lexus GS has more distinction and better handling to match improved connectivity; even so, it's still playing catch-up.

What, me worry? The Mercedes-Benz E-Class reasserts its alpha status with a tighter forehead, a greener turbodiesel, and a pair of all-wheel-drive AMGs.
