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 luxury four-door market is diverging into two main classes: the true sedans and the four-door sports cars.

The BMW 7-Series and S-Class represent the former; the Panamera and Quattroporte the latter.

All, however, offer many of the same features, just filtered through a different lens.

The BMW 7-Series and S-Class, for example, provide long-wheelbase options for true executive limousine use, while the Quattroporte is short on rear-seat space.

The Panamera does better in this regard, but gives up a traditional sedan profile to do it--with a controversial exterior design.

The Panamera's performance, on the other hand, is even more impressive than the Quattroporte's, particularly in Turbo form, yet despite its excellent materials and workmanship, lacks some of the passion and panache of the Italian's interior and exterior style.
