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 2014 Infiniti Q70 3.7 and Q70 5.6 sedans might not set a new benchmark for their class, but they do compete as true equals with the best of the German and Japanese alternatives.

The Audi A6 is fresh and well-equipped, with its own conservative take on style and a plush, detail-focused interior.

The Audi A7 ups the exterior styling ante while matching the A6's quality interior.

Both Audis offer compelling powertrain options, most notably a fun and efficient supercharged V-6.

The Jaguar XF is another good choice, with its rocket-quick 510-horsepower XFR version, or its more affordable, yet well-finished and uniquely styled trims--but it is a bit short on rear seat space.

The Lexus GS isn't as performance-oriented as the Infiniti Q70, but it is well-equipped and tastefully finished.

BMW's 5-Series matches or exceeds the Q70's handling, while offering even more available safety technology; Mercedes-Benz's E Class is perhaps the more formal option, though still sporty in its own right, too, and offering plenty of upgrades and equipment.

The 2014 Infiniti Q70 sedan range is fast, fun-to-drive, better to look at, and comfortable--a world-class combination.

Brilliance takes many forms in the Audi A6: the diesel-driven TDI, the supercharged A6, or the turbocharged S6 all stand out in ways the sedate body doesn't quite match.

The basic 2014 Audi A7 is gorgeous, yes--but you'll swoon from the heady mix of raw sex appeal and torrid performance in the S7 and RS 7.

The 2014 BMW 5-Series is simultaneously a classic sport sedan and a technology-packed grand tourer.

TCC Rating
With backseat space as the one caveat, the 2014 Jaguar XF lineup can at once be refined, nimble, and a scorcher of a performer in XFR or exclusive XFR-S guise.

The 2014 Lexus GS has more distinction and better handling to match improved connectivity; even so, it's still playing catch-up.
