TCC Rating
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 2015 Volkswagen CC's main competitors fit into two different groups: on one side are mass-market sedans like the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Hyundai Sonata; and on the other side, entry-level sport sedans such as the Acura A4, Acura TLX, and Volvo S60.

Compared to the Camry and Accord, the CC just isn't as practical or comfortable--the back seat is smaller, the driver's seating position is odd, and it costs slightly more.

But compared to any of these luxury models, the CC's back seat space isn't any worse.

The Audi A4 has a tighter interior, though it's somewhat better trimmed and drives more like a pure sport sedan.

The Acura TLX is another good alternative and is available with a performance-oriented all-wheel-drive system.

The Volvo S60 is also somewhat sportier to drive than the CC, although it doesn't feel all that much more luxurious.

While the Mercedes-Benz CLS looks quite a bit like the CC from a distance, at least in profile, the larger CLS models cost tens of thousands more.

Finally, the Nissan Maxima may be the closest to the CC in spirit; it's also a dressed-up, more fashionable sedan based on a mainstream one (the Altima, for Nissan).

The 2015 Volkswagen CC sacrifices some usability for style; it's a grown-up's compromise between a true two-door coupe and a stodgier sedan.

The 2015 Audi A4 and S4 sedans are tech-laden, trim, handsome alternatives to the other expected German cars, as well as one very good American one.

The 2015 Honda Crosstour straddles the line between a comfortable and nimble Accord sedan and a larger, more practical crossover vehicle, with some benefits and drawbacks to accompany the muddied mission.

The 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class looks better than ever, offers upgraded tech and safety, and continues to post impressive performance.

The 2014 Nissan Maxima isn't the enthusiast car it claims to be, but it is a more luxurious, more stylish option than many of its competitors.
