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 The 2009 Maserati GranTurismo will satisfy even the most finicky high-end coupe buyers, giving them a truly exclusive look and feel—and the sound of a Ferrari. The 2008 Audi S5 boasts performance like a BMW M3, styling like a Chevrolet Camaro, and a brilliant handling setup that's distinctly Audi--but only the well-heeled need to apply.
