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.

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 MKS's American take on full-size luxury leaves it off the list of the typical German-luxosedan shopper, but it's an able competitor for another set of four-doors, ones without sporty handling as a priority.

The new Acura RLX has been nipped and tucked into a better car than it replaces, but at times the distinctions can feel minor.

Volvo's S80 is related to the MKS but lacks the turbocharged option, and almost all the swagger.

You'll find that all and more in the Chrysler 300, with rear-drive and an equal amount of technology, and a lower pricetag, too.

The Lexus GS is one choice among that brand's high-touch, high-dollar offerings--but we'd also suggest the Lexus ES 350 and its newly expanded rear seat as a fine MKS alternative.

The 2014 Lincoln MKS doesn't fly in the same business class with the best German luxosedans, but it's a quiet, capable alternative in the second tier of big, upscale sedans.

TCC Rating
The 2014 Acura RLX leaves the bold ambition to other brands; it's a studied update that delivers smoother looks, quicker performance, and better fuel economy, but no more excitement.

TCC Rating
The Chrysler 300 is loaded with comfort and technology features, and it comes as either a near-luxury sedan, or an monstrously powerful muscle car.

TCC Rating
The 2014 Lexus ES is an attractive package in its segment, and the hybrid model makes for a very compelling alternative to more expensive green luxury cars.

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

TCC Rating
The 2014 Volvo S80 isn't at all about performance, but what it does–and does well–is offer a safe, stylish, supremely comfortable sedan for fashion-conscious families.
