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.

While Hyundai puts the Genesis in a class with the mid-size German sedans, it's more a competitor for some mid-priced luxury sedans from other brands.

We'd shop it against the six-cylinder Infiniti M, which has more expressive styling and better handling, better dealers and a manual-transmission option, but a much higher price tag.

The Lexus ES 350 is a good match in many ways for the Genesis, but it has a shorter warranty to balance out a superior customer-service reputation.

Chrysler's 300 is a hipster Hyundai in hiding: it's packed with value, has an all-wheel-drive option, edgy looks (especially in mobster black) and a scorching SRT8 version.

The Acura TL used to be the technophile's choice, but it now lags in features and in performance.

New this year, the Lincoln MKZ's spun off the latest Ford Fusion; that likely means great dynamics, and new luxury features like a panoramic sunroof are supposed to put distance between this pricey version and the more mundane Fusion/Mondeo derivative.
