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 Volvo S60 comes in a wide variety of configurations, all of them delivering unparalleled safety.

At the bottom, there's a sporting European sedan with good fuel economy that faces off against the Acura TLX; add $20K and you can have the T6 R Design model that Volvo wants to pit against the 333-hp Audi S4.

The S60 is fun to drive, and a good long-distance tourer, but it's not the same league--for performance or handling--as competitors like the Audi A4, BMW 3-Series, or the more luxurious and solid Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

The Infiniti Q70 (formerly Infiniti M range) is larger inside and out, and not as sporty, but its flashy shape and luxurious interior are at the opposite end of the scale from the Volvo.

One dark-horse contender might be the German-designed Buick Regal GS, perhaps not as striking in looks but a good performer that's comfortable up front--and price-competitive.

Forget this model's recent past; the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class takes a half-step up in size and a full step ahead of its peer set in sophistication -- and it's now one very charming luxury car.
