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 front- or all-wheel-drive Lincoln MKZ might be on some Audi, Infiniti, or BMW shopping lists, but it has more in common with near-luxury vehicles from Acura, Buick, and Lexus.

The Acura TL's a good case in point; its all-wheel-drive system and big V-6 give it an uncharacteristically numb driving feel, though interior space is good.

Also, it offers shoppers tech-savvy audio and navigation options, but it's just not as appealing as the TL lineup has been in the past.

The new Buick LaCrosse is an engaging option in this class, with a striking design and compelling city-streets performance, though it's without an all-wheel-drive option, and some of its trim looks too bright and too shiny.

The Lexus ES 350 is the easy choice for non-enthusiasts; its cabin isn't too rich to be noticeable, the ride and handling aren't as numb as they used to be but are still forgettable, and the design's uninspired but innocuous.

Boldly styled and laden with high-tech features, the 2010 Acura TL is a solid value, though enthusiasts might find its overall ability lacking.

Comfort-minded buyers who room for four in a sensibly-sized sedan—and still want the latest technology—won't be able to do much better than the 2010 Lexus ES 350.
