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 2015 Volkswagen GTI keeps its hot-hatch edge, but boosts its day-to-day charm with more fuel efficiency and comfort. The 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX and STI are fun to drive, tractable in a wide range of conditions, and surprisingly comfortable and versatile; but the lack of an automatic transmission and poor fuel economy are factors that might limit their appeal.
