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 radically reimagined Jaguar XJ now has better efficiency and all-wheel drive, and it's a more well-rounded option in the executive-luxury sedan segment.

For alternatives, there's the sexy Audi A7 and its stunning, swift S7 companion piece--or the more traditional-looking A8, in short- and long-wheelbase form.

A Mercedes-Benz S-Class beats the XJ on prestige and safety features, but it's not as striking, leaving that chore to the lesser, but more beautiful CLS.

The new BMW 6-Series Gran Sport takes the four-door coupe idea to a bulkier conclusion, and to our eyes, it's the least sultry-looking of that subset.

Lastly, we'd suggest a relative bargain in this group, the Infiniti M56.

With just a V-8, it's nearly the breakout performer of the group thanks to excellent handling, and its interior is a graceful piece of design with a touch of silver dust on top, if you're in an extravagant mood.
