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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

We'd shop the Genesis against the six-cylinder Infiniti M (now called Q60), which has more expressive styling and better handling, better dealers and a manual-transmission option, but a much higher price tag.

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

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.

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.

The 2014 Acura TL is an attractive, comfortable, well-appointed luxury sedan. Choose the SH-AWD model, and you have yourself a legitimate sport sedan, too.

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.

The 2014 Lexus ES is an attractive package in its segment, and the hybrid model makes for a very compelling alternative to more expensive green luxury cars.
