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.

All the vehicles in this class have a very distinct character; they’re sold as much on how the tactile feel they send to the driver as they are styling and features.

The Porsche 911 comes in Targa and Cabriolet versions, as well as Turbo form, and has the automaker’s famous flat-six engines mounted at the back.

The Cadillac XLR has a supercharged option like the Jaguar, but its folding hardtop, angular body, and American V-8 sound have a different appeal.

The BMW 6-Series has a fabric convertible top and a 500-hp M6 edition, while the Mercedes-Benz SL roadsters sport a folding hardtop and available AMG versions with more than 600 hp.

The XK however has a more distinctive interior design than either the BMW or the Benz.

On par in performance with its German competitors but far better looking, the 2009 XK is simply the best mainstream Jaguar ever.

The eye-catching 2009 Cadillac XLR starts with the sharp-edged Corvette and makes some compromises for the sake of grand-touring luxury.

TCC Rating
The 2008 BMW 6-Series is overwrought and overstocked with technology that distracts even from the M6’s heroic performance.
