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.

Radical new looks make some of the 2011 Jaguar XJ's competitors look fusty--but there's something to recommend each one.

The Audi A8 is the only other aluminum-space-frame luxury sedan, though Audi’s particular construction techniques and standard all-wheel drive makes it much heavier.

The Lexus LS 460 is a prime target for the new XJ, since it’s adopted an “L-finesse” exterior shape that appeals to a more feminine take on luxury.

The Mercedes-Benz CLS has coupe-like lines and a lavishly trimmed interior; it’s also offered in an AMG edition that’s more powerful than the Supersport XJ.
