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.

One of the longtime leaders in luxury sales, the Mercedes E-Class comes in a wide variety of drivetrains and body styles, from diesel to AMG.

That makes vehicles like the Audi A6 and BMW 5-Series its closest rivals, in both performance and prestige.

The 5-Series has grown big and complex over the years like the E-Class, but in all but the most posh versions its interior is stark, and its adaptive driving controls don't always converge on a happy medium.

Likewise, the M5 can be a thrilling performer at supernatural speeds but overkill at anything resembling regular duty.

Meanwhile, the A6 has relative lightness and user-friendly road manners in its corner, but we'd still prefer its sexy hatchback A7 counterpart ten times out of ten.

Meanwhile, the Jaguar XF is a rising contender, with beautiful design and eager responses--and new all-wheel drive and supercharged V-6 options.

We're still fans of the Infiniti M sedan as well: it's a pretty four-door, with with a choice of hybrid, six-cylinder, and eight-cylinder engines, and rear- or all-wheel drive.

What, me worry? The Mercedes-Benz E-Class reasserts its alpha status with a tighter forehead, a greener turbodiesel, and a pair of all-wheel-drive AMGs.

Brilliance takes many forms in the Audi A6: the diesel-driven TDI, the supercharged A6, or the turbocharged S6 all stand out in ways the sedate body doesn't quite match.

The 2014 BMW 5-Series is simultaneously a classic sport sedan and a technology-packed grand tourer.

The 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan scales up the ATS' handsome profile and spot-on handling, and tops it off with a winning Vsport edition.

The 2014 Infiniti Q70 sedan range is fast, fun-to-drive, better to look at, and comfortable--a world-class combination.

TCC Rating
With backseat space as the one caveat, the 2014 Jaguar XF lineup can at once be refined, nimble, and a scorcher of a performer in XFR or exclusive XFR-S guise.
