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.

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 2015 Volvo S80's T5 Drive-E base model offers impressive gas mileage and exceptional comfort for the luxury sedan class.

Jaguar's XF is perhaps more handsome, and is more oriented toward the sporty end of the spectrum, particularly in the V-8-powered models.

The Cadillac XTS is perhaps the S80's closest competitor, with striking exterior styling and plenty of safety technology, though its CUE infotainment system is buggy and complex.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5-Series are stalwarts of the category, and while they can offer sportier and even higher-tech alternatives, both can also quickly outstrip the S80's price.
