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 mid-size Lexus GS stakes a claim to some of the mid-size luxury market occupied by some of the most popular and prestigious cars in the world.

We love the Benz diesel sedans and the AMG E63, and their newly settled styling language; BMW's turbo sixes are swell, and the M5 is dazzling with its rev-matching manual.

The Audi A6 is fine, though we prefer its sleeker hatchback A7 cousin; the front- or all-wheel-drive sedan can be had with a supercharged V-6 and tech wonders like Google Earth mapping and S-line sport trim.

The Cadillac CTS gets the nod for distinctive American styling and a lineup that includes sedan, coupe, and wagon, as well as the power-crazy V-Series; the new sedan for 2014 improves rear-seat room and interior quality.

Finally, the renamed Infiniti Q70 may be the GS' most direct challenger: it has great handling, a charming fluid style and rippling V-6 power, but some coarse drivetrain noises and less badge equity than some other brands.

The 2014 Lexus GS has more distinction and better handling to match improved connectivity; even so, it's still playing catch-up.

Brilliance takes many forms in the Audi A6: the diesel-driven TDI, the supercharged A6, or the turbocharged S6 all stand out in ways the sedate body doesn't quite match.

The 2014 BMW 5-Series is simultaneously a classic sport sedan and a technology-packed grand tourer.

What, me worry? The Mercedes-Benz E-Class reasserts its alpha status with a tighter forehead, a greener turbodiesel, and a pair of all-wheel-drive AMGs.
