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 would like to think that the Hyundai Genesis competes with the likes of the BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, but for most buyers of those models, the badge is a major portion of the value.

Looking purely at specs, styling, and overall layout, the Genesis takes aim at the Chrysler 300, Lexus GS, and Infiniti M, as well as the Cadillac STS.

The M37/M56 and GS 350/460 are both tuned with a higher-performance feel than the Genesis, and the Hyundai's relaxed demeanor is better rivaled by standard editions of the Chrysler 300, which has been refreshed for 2011.

Other alternatives to Genesis might also include the front-wheel-drive Acura TL or Nissan Maxima, which can cost about as much as a Genesis in loaded form.

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.

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

The 2011 Infiniti M pairs beauty with a beastly V-8 engine—and at last, Infiniti makes its marque in a class full of winners.

TCC Rating
The 2011 Lexus GS sedans are fast, refined, and well-appointed; but low points include a cramped backseat and, for the 450h Hybrid, lackluster fuel economy.
