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 Dodge Charger isn't a luxury car, and most of its variations don't quite make it into muscle-car or full on sport sedan territory, but it's good at playing both of those roles.

The Chrysler 300 is the Charger's platform-mate and closest competitor, sharing the same drivetrains while offering a more upscale interior.

The Ford Taurus is more engaging than the Charger if it's equipped with Ford's EcoBoost V-6, but its rear seat is disappointingly small.

The Hyundai Genesis sedan is tuned more softly than the Charger, making it a less assertive alternative.

The Nissan Maxima looks like a sport sedan, but in truth it's more comfortable and luxurious than engaging to drive.

The Jaguar XF may seem like it comes out of left field here, but its strong V-8 and overt styling make it a solid contender for the HEMI-equipped Charger R/T and SRT.

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

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.

TCC Rating
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

TCC Rating
With backseat space as the one caveat, the 2014 Jaguar XF lineup can at once be refined, nimble, and a scorcher of a performer in XFR or exclusive XFR-S guise.

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.
