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.

European brands all offer wagons in this market niche, and save for the new Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen, they provide four-wheel-drive versions of their wagons, as well as V-6 power.

The Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen is considerably cheaper than the others in this group, but it also brings a diesel engine option to the party for the 2009 model year.

The 2008 Jaguar X-Type hasn't won many fans in the United States, but its exceptional handling and usable cargo room probably leave Jaguar execs wondering why.

The 2008 BMW 3-Series sedan has the best overall driving experience in its class and remains the gold standard among mid-size sport sedans.
