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 2010 Volvo S80, at the base level with front-wheel drive and a large, comfortable interior, competes with a wide range of luxury sedans.

The Mercedes E-Class and the BMW 5-Series both offer V-8 versions and all-wheel drive, as well as extensive safety features, while the new Acura RL is a good competitor, and perhaps the closest to the S80.

But oddly, the RL feels sportier than base-model S80.

For those who wish to be a little more flamboyant, the V-8-powered Jaguar XF is worth a serious look; the Jag’s interior is warm and smooth, while the Volvo is a bit cold and stark in its interior design especially.

We’re not saying either is better for design—it’s really a matter of personal taste.

Safety and comfort—and advanced tech features—never get short shrift in the 2010 Volvo S80, but not even a V-8 and all-wheel drive makes it a serious sport sedan.

The 2010 Acura RL offers lots of features and strong safety. Performance takes a backseat in the 2010 RL-but technology and durability certainly don't.
