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.

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.

With a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive and V-6 or V-8 engines, the 2010 Cadillac STS/STS-V slots right alongside the mid-size luxury sedans from Germany and Japan, but both those vehicles are new for 2010 and 2011.

The new E-Class takes a turn to the edgy, and its styling doesn't win many friends, though it feels lighter and more adept than ever before.

A new 5-Series arrives early in 2010, and a preview in the form of the 5-Series Gran Turismo shows a refined interior, a handsome new design outside, and likely, more fits for Cadillac and Mercedes.

Yet another STS rival is the new Jaguar XF/XFR, with a stunning new body, a boutique-hotel interior, and massively powerful V-8 engines but no all-wheel drive.

The Infiniti M models are due to be replaced in 2011 with a svelte new shape, but the 2010 models have a surprisingly roomy interior-including a spacious backseat, which is somewhat hard to find in this class-along with available all-wheel drive.

The 2010 Cadillac STS drives well-the STS-V is a trailblazer-but the cramped backseat and well-worn styling haven't kept pace in the luxury class.

The 2009 Jaguar XF is an easy car to love. It performs as well as anything in the class--and has unexpected glamorous touches that will win over converts.

The 2008 Audi A6 has plenty of competition, but its graceful look and feel set it apart from more brutal German and more clinical Japanese iron.

The 5-Series sedans and wagons aren't the most practical or the best values in their class, but they're very enjoyable to drive.
