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.

With its 3.6-liter direct-injected V-6, the 2009 Cadillac STS is a solid performer with decent comfort, and it’s one of the closest rivals to the Infiniti M in offering a compromise between sport and luxury.

The new 2009 Acura RL takes off in a new direction stylistically—which might appeal to some and repel others—and the primarily front-wheel-drive RL is at its best in all-wheel-drive (SH-AWD) form.

The traditional German brands naturally slot in thanks to their reputations.

However, the 2009 Infiniti M (either the M35 or M45) tends to be a nicer combination of comfortable appointments and a charismatic driving personality, leaving the Mercedes and Audi feeling perhaps overly conservative and technical.

The 2009 Acura RL tops safety rankings and bristles with technology, but its detached driving feel and over-the-top front-end styling remove it from the best-in-class competition.

The 2008 Audi A6 has plenty of competition, but its graceful look and feel set it apart from more brutal German and more clinical Japanese iron.

The 5-Series sedans and wagons aren't the most practical or the best values in their class, but they're very enjoyable to drive.
