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.

The 2011 Infiniti M pits itself against some of the best-selling luxury sedans in the world.

The Audi A6 is in its final year of production, yet still offers a balanced ride and handling package, a well-fitted cabin, and choices of engines, transmissions and front- or all-wheel drive.

The BMW 5-Series will be new for 2011, and a more cohesive look will put its recent styling troubles in the past--though electronic systems could overwhelm its essential driving characteristics.

The Benz E-Class arrived new for the 2010 model year, with a sharply pressed new suit and an upgraded interior--and a newfound sense of the road ahead, with sharper, quicker steering and a hot AMG-powered E63 four-door version.

Also revamped this year: the Jaguar XF, which gets a 510-hp V-8 as its most powerful offering while its rejuvenated body still draws stares and its gimmicky interior still wows first-time passengers.

Two dark horses in this race are the turbocharged Lincoln MKS, which marries Volvo-style dynamics with a brilliant powertrain and a distinctive, chrome-lined interior, and the Hyundai Genesis--a dead ringer for the former Infiniti M, down to its leather-trimmed dash and its rippling V-8 option.
