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 Quattroporte spans a delicate chasm between true ultra-luxury sedans and four-door sports cars.

Models like the BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class are more the former (except for their Alpina and AMG variants, perhaps), while the Porsche Panamera, Maserati Quattroporte, and Aston Martin Rapide are on the performance side.

Between these models, you'll find advanced active-safety features like Attention Assist, night vision systems, and head-up displays on the German luxury flagships, while the others have more of an emphasis on materials, beauty, and exclusivity.

The BMW 7-Series and S-Class are offered in 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; although we do like the Panamera's overall performance better than that of the Quattroports--especially in Panamera Turbo form.

Meanwhile, the Panamera does lack some of the passion and panache of the Italian's interior and exterior style--as well as the Maserati's intoxicating engine souind.
