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.

The 2015 Volvo S60 remains a striking shape with unbeatable safety ratings and equipment, and offers a range of models from quiet and comfortable to flamboyant and edgy.
The 2015 Acura TLX should clear up some confusion in the mid-size niche, but will the new sedan click with buyers?

The 2014 Audi A4 and S4 are trim, tech-savvy alternatives to the usual German luxury sedans, and to one stunningly good American one.

It's the best driver's car in the lineup, and the 2014 Buick Regal adds better infotainment and safety--with a slight cut to the GS' power.

For those who have a want a value-oriented car that projects the right image, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class makes a lot of sense.
