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.

Rear-drive competitors are few and far between for the value-priced Chrysler 300.

The Hyundai Genesis weighs in with its Infiniti-like silhouette and its own rippling V-8, and some high-dollar execution in its cabin.

Other pleasing big American sedans include the Buick LaCrosse, which has a more pinched interior than the 300, but a little more expressive range in its styling--maybe.

The Ford Taurus is the blocky tackler of the group, with optional all-wheel drive and a supercharged SHO edition turning in near-HEMI performance numbers; it too's a bit crowded in back, and surprisingly, a little cramped in the front thanks to a wide console.

A riper, more mature Chrysler 300 renews our faith in restrained American styling--and in big V-8, rear-drive fun.

The 2011 Ford Taurus isn’t quite a game-changing sedan, but it's a handsome, solid, high-quality choice.

If you can do without a luxury logo, the 2011 Hyundai Genesis provides performance, features, and comfort—including impressive detailing—to match premium-brand sedans costing much more.
