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 says the Genesis has the power and interior space of a BMW 7-Series or Benz S-Class, but the real targets here are Japanese luxury sedans like the Infiniti M four-doors and the Lexus GS range.

The Infiniti sedans have snappy handling and quick, responsive steering, as well as a leather-wrapped dash that's a dead ringer for that in the Genesis.

The Lexus GS sports a hybrid option, but significantly less interior room than the Hyundai, albeit with flawless execution.

The Chrysler 300 is a viable alternative, since it offers V-8 power and all-wheel drive, which the Genesis does not-but the 300 has a plainer cabin and less luxury credibility than any of these other sedans.

The 2010 Hyundai Genesis is a power play for luxury credibility-and it's just about the equal of mid-size luxury rivals from Lexus and Infiniti.

Call us converts: The latest 2010 BMW 7-Series turns our eyes more than ever and drives with real big-guy brio.

The 2010 Infiniti M sedans reward drivers with Germanic handling and acceleration, though it's hard to pick them out from a crowd.

Respectable performance and top technology make the 2010 Lexus GS 350 and GS 460 worthwhile sport sedans, but low points include a cramped backseat and a GS 450h hybrid model that fails to wow for fuel economy.

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class goes from exclusive to earth-friendly to exotically fast-in just a couple hundred thousand dollars.
