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.

The 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.

And with the introduction of the new Q70L model this year, the Q70 might at last be considered a rival to the step-up models like the BMW 7-Series, Jaguar XJR, and possibly even the Mercedes-Benz S-Class or Lexus LS.

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.

With a new long-wheelbase model, the 2015 Infiniti Q70 sedan range isn't just fast, fun to drive, and ahead of the tech curve--it's a real alternative to the German elbow-throwers.

The 2015 Audi A6 may look a little sedate, but it's a brilliant performer–thanks to its diesel-driven TDI, the supercharged A6, or turbocharged S6 versions.

The A7 is handsome no matter how you slice it, but it's the brawn S7 and brutish RS7 that really gets our blood flowing.

Whether it's more of a classic sport sedan or a technology-packed tourer you seek, the 2015 BMW 5-Series fills both roles admirably.

The 2015 Jaguar XF covers a broad range of needs, from the efficient 2.0-liter turbo model, to the over-the-top XFR-S performance sedan.
The 2015 Lexus GS family offers a classic, conservative sport-sedan profile -- and enough performance to please most -- but overlays it with as much luxury and technology as you please.
