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.

Hyundai's rapid ascension in the auto world can't be a happy thing for Lexus, which performed the same feat 20 years ago.

Its LS sedan is expertly crafted but still benign to the touch, and anodyne to the eye.

The German executive sedans--the S-Class and the 7-Series--are larger than ever, and haven't paid too big a price in handling.

Both can suffer from tech overload, and both are priced far higher than the Equus, even the Ultimate version of the Korean sedan.

The Jaguar XJ is a stunning piece, restyled and glammed up for the 2011 model year, but it sacrifices rear-seat space for that ravishing roofline, and build quality doesn't seem to have moved forward into the new century.

The 2011 Lexus LS sedans deliver a luxury-liner ride and hushed interior, with some options that are unmatched by all but ultra-luxury brands, but they sorely lack driving involvement.
