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 Chrysler 300, 300S and 300C sedans find themselves in a unique space for near-luxury sedans, with their muscular design, powerful available engines, rear-wheel-drive layout and luxury-level technology features.

The Hyundai Genesis may be a close alternative, but it's tuned more softly and designed more generically.

The Ford Taurus is primarily front-wheel-drive, but it offers all-wheel drive and a turbocharged SHO version.

Its interior isn't as roomy or sleek, though.

The Buick LaCrosse is more comfort-oriented than the 300, and its mild-hybrid eAssist version earns significantly better fuel economy, too.

The Nissan Maxima looks upscale and sporty, but it's not nearly as engaging behind the wheel, and its technology and safety features have started to show their age.

Finally, there's Chrysler's own Charger, which is the 300's near-twin under the hood, but with more aggressive design and a lower entry price.

The Chrysler 300 is loaded with comfort and technology features, and it comes as either a near-luxury sedan, or an monstrously powerful muscle car.

Great on gas or long on comfort and refinement--the Buick LaCrosse can be either, though we'd steer you toward the premium editions.

The 2014 Dodge Charger's interior may surprise luxury car shoppers, but it'll definitely delight the blue collar crowd.

The 2014 Ford Taurus continues in its role of luxury and technology flagship for the Ford brand, but it remains compromised by its lack of rear-seat headroom and legroom

The 2014 Nissan Maxima isn't the enthusiast car it claims to be, but it is a more luxurious, more stylish option than many of its competitors.

The millionaire next door just might be driving a Hyundai Genesis; it's a luxury-car bargain, with a well-finished interior, plenty of power and good fuel economy.
