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.

With its top-of-the-line, performance-oriented T6 R-Design model, Volvo wants to pit the S60 against sport sedans like the 333-hp Audi S4, as well as the 300-hp BMW 335i.

While the S60 may have more power than these models, they're both quicker to deliver, and they have better handling, too.

That's not to say the S60 isn't fun to drive–it's a thrill to drive fast on long stretches, and its ride is exceptional in T6 guise.

The Mercedes-Benz C250 is a solid alternative to the S60 T5, though the S60's rear seat is larger.

If we're looking for an unexpected choice, take a look at the Buick Regal GS.

It's not a looker by comparison to the Volvo, but the performance is there, and it's comfortable for the folks in the front seat.
