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.

The MKS excels at a uniquely American style of luxury.

It's quicker than the Acura RL, and it beats that sedan on technology--although the RLX, a replacement, is due this next year.

Meanwhile, the Lexus GS 350 is new for 2013, and we're curious to see how it stacks up against the MKS.

The six-cylinder Volvo S80 is related to the MKS, but lacks the turbo option and has a much plainer interior, too.

For an offbeat choice, we suggest a drive in the Chrysler 300--especially the SRT8 version, with its throbbing horsepower and its very competitive price, even against the base MKS.

Although the Chrysler's interior simply isn't as spacious and comfortable.

The 2013 Lincoln MKS steers away from both traditional American luxury and German sport sedans--and ends up in a good place for those who want a distinctive, well-rounded big sedan.

The image-building 2013 Chrysler 300 is handsome and classy, as well as a proper luxury car or a scorching muscle sedan.

The 2013 Lexus GS 350 gains a little confidence and connectivity, while its competition gains some weight and complexity.

The 2013 Volvo S80 is supremely comfortable, safe, and stylish sedan—and a great pick for fashion-conscious families—although those wanting a true performance edge should look elsewhere.

TCC Rating
The 2012 Acura RL is loaded with tech features and supremely comfortable for long-haul trips; but it won't get driving enthusiasts all that excited.
