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 2014 Volvo S80's base front-wheel drive model is an exceptionally comfortable luxury sedan that's packed with active-safety technology.

For now, the Cadillac XTS is probably its closest competitor, available with similar driver safety tech and even a seat that vibrates to alert the driver of immanent hazards.

The XTS also has the very handsome, if occasionally buggy CUE infotainment system.

The Jaguar XF makes for another handsome alternative, but with more available performance, especially if you look to its supercharged V8 models.

The BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class are two other large, comfortable alternatives, but their prices can easily sore above the S80's, making them less competitive for the money.

The 2014 BMW 5-Series is simultaneously a classic sport sedan and a technology-packed grand tourer.

For those focused on safety, technology, and comfort—but not necessarily performance—the 2014 Cadillac XTS is everything a big luxury sedan should be.

TCC Rating
With backseat space as the one caveat, the 2014 Jaguar XF lineup can at once be refined, nimble, and a scorcher of a performer in XFR or exclusive XFR-S guise.

What, me worry? The Mercedes-Benz E-Class reasserts its alpha status with a tighter forehead, a greener turbodiesel, and a pair of all-wheel-drive AMGs.
