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 Volvo S60 has a curvaceous style and V-6 power, but is due for replacement for 2010.

The Lincoln MKZ is the polar opposite of the Saab, with a thick style, a retro-flavored interior, and gruff V-6 engines with front- or all-wheel drive.

The Volkswagen Passat comes with a range of four- and six-cylinder engines, and is offered in a wagon version.

The Lexus ES 350 is a plush, cushy front-drive sedan with good interior room and a powerful V-6 engine, but almost no care for sporty driving.

The Acura RL has clean styling outside, a tech-happy interior, and standard all-wheel drive.

If you don’t mind buying a 2009 Saab 9-5 that looks almost exactly like the 1999 model, there’s still a lot of quirky appeal.

The 2009 Acura RL tops safety rankings and bristles with technology, but its detached driving feel and over-the-top front-end styling remove it from the best-in-class competition.

Though it’s in a very conservative package, the 2009 Lincoln MKZ is a credible luxury bargain for those who value comfort over driving excitement.

The 2008 Lexus ES 350 is a plush, soft-handling car that would make Buick proud--if Buick still built cars like this.

The 2008 Volvo S60 is a comfortable, safe all-weather sedan, but if you want top sport-sedan performance, you should look elsewhere.
