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 2008 Volvo S80 slots in between the usual European, Japanese, and domestic competition, thanks to its front-wheel drive and large interior.

The Acura RL is a good competitor, with a new face for 2009, standard all-wheel drive, and a V-6 powertrain.

The Mercedes E-Class comes in a wide range of flavors, as does the BMW 5-Series; both offer V-8 versions and all-wheel drive, as well as extensive safety features.

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.

The 5-Series sedans and wagons aren't the most practical or the best values in their class, but they're very enjoyable to drive.
