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.

There was a time when the Lexus LS was the king of the marketplace–a car that represented high status and even higher quality.

Since then, the industry has caught up with competitors like the Jaguar XJ, which has dumped its poor track record for stunning design, impressive performance and glitzy interior.

The Infiniti M isn't quite the same size or price as the other cars in the segment, but it's tried to elbow its way into the large luxury sedan class, too.

The Audi A8 offers more high-tech gadgetry than the rest of the competitors, with Google mapping and in-car WiFi.

However, the two biggest competitors for the LS are the BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Both are available with short- and long-wheelbase and a variety of powertrain configurations, though the Mercedes wins the power game with its heavily-tuned AMG versions.

The Mercedes S-Class has also been redesigned for 2014, making it the most expensive and most cutting-edge vehicle in the segment.
