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.

TCC's Bottom Line The 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and Ralliart have well-honed performance capabilities but lack all the refinement to make them day-to-day enjoyable. Other Choices Overall the 2010 MazdaSpeed3 delivers pulse-quickening thrills for the back roads—or weekend track forays—all on a tight budget, without sacrificing too much practicality for everyday commuting.
