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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

The Jaguar XK's blend of comfort, style, and speed is unique, but others have their own take on the concept.

Maserati's GranTurismo is the Italian version, with Ferrari V-8 power and engine notes, as well as custom-tailored interior and a svelte, European exterior.

BMW's 6-Series offers a different experience in a similar vein, with higher curb weights and lower power outputs (excepting the potent M6), as well as a look and feel all its own--though perhaps somewhat less head-turning than the XK.

The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is all-new for 2014, and while it's not from a luxury brand, available upgrades to the interior make it a legitimate competitor, while its heritage of track-inspired performance give it the speed to hang with vehicles more often classified as supercars.

Mercedes-Benz's SL Class is far more focused on the grand touring side of things, with no real emphasis on edgy performance at all; on the luxury scale, however, the SL approaches a 10.

The Porsche 911, like the Corvette, is a sports car first, and everything else second, but unlike the Chevy, the 911's luxury is standard, and it even offers a back seat that's somewhat more usable thank the XK's.
