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.

TCC's Bottom Line If you're looking for Corvette fun wrapped in Cadillac luxury and comfort, with an added dose of practicality, the 2013 CTS-V is your answer. Despite its relative age, weight, and complexity, the 2013 BMW M3 is still a very satisfying dual-purpose street and track-capable car.
