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 BMW 7-Series is a go-to choice for the luxury full-size sedan class, and has been for many years.

The latest model is no exception, delivering excellent driving dynamics and refined comfort, though the Panamera outdoes the 7-Series on outright performance, and also offers its unusual style.

The Mercedes-Benz S Class has long been a benchmark for the class, and with an all-new model out for 2014, it remains a solid choice for technology-conscious buyers with conservative tastes, though AMG models up the ante on both performance and curb appeal.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS Class is a style-smart buy in the large sedan class, with its coupe-like styling putting it on natural competitive ground with the Panamera.

Luxurious and comfortable in standard form, the AMG version of the CLS Class can come off a bit harsh and hard-riding.

Maserati's latest take on the Quattroporte offers its own Italian style and passion, with opulent interior design and brisk, if not quite thrilling performance.
