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 Jaguar XF slipped silently into a class of sedans that include some of the world's benchmarks for luxury and performance.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class gets a streamlined new look this year, and it's one of the few vehicles anywhere that offers the trio of powertrains: diesel, hybrid, and gas.

It's also sold as a coupe and cabriolet, and hyper-performing AMG editions.

The BMW 5-Series offers turbocharged V-8 performance and pretty impressive handling, though it's grown a little bloated in size and techno features.

The Audi A6 and A7 were new for 2012 and mechanically are quite closely related--but who doesn't prefer the A7's gorgeous styling? One final alternative is the Infiniti M56; it offers an athleticism that rivals that of the XF, but you'll have to deal with less interior glitz and more badge envy.

Refined, nimble, and a scorcher in R trim, the Jaguar XF's only remaining hurdle to greatness is back-seat space.

Traditional looks disguise this Audi's brilliance: it's a blast to drive in either 3.0T trim or S6 spec.

The 2013 BMW 5-Series packs in the advanced technology and fuel-efficient powertrains, yet it manages to keep true to its sport-sedan mission.

With sharp handling, scorching performance, and decent comfort, the 2013 Infiniti M sedans are bold and beautiful but not overwrought.
