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 C70 fills the space of the former Coupe (discontinued in 2002) and the Convertible (discontinued in 2004). It's less sleek than the cars it replaces, and while it's a little plain, the C70's shape is clean and well detailed with a minimum of clutter. The 2008 Audi A4 Cabriolet doesn’t charge ahead like a Corvette, but its lush, four-seat cabin makes it a good choice for more relaxed drivers.
