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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

While there is no shortage of high-performance, luxurious grand touring coupes on the market, the Aston Martin DB9 still is a suave alternative to the slightly more mainstream choices.

The Maserati GranTurismo is almost dead even with the Aston on all measures, but it's somewhat less expensive, and to some its sultry looks are altogether sexier than the more reserved British sports car's bespoke suit.

The Bentley Continental GT's almost part of the landscape in southern California; it's a beefy counterpoint to the lithe Aston look, but its exquisite interior trims offer more variety and its powertrains are more up to date.

The Ferrari California offers similar performance and style with the added benefit of a retractable hard top, though it's considered something of a Lexus SC 430 among Ferraris.

The 2014 Aston Martin DB9 offers a refined balance of power and prestige, James Bond-cool whatever the situation.

Well-mannered in nearly every situation, the 2014 Bentley Continental GT is a powerhouse more fitted for a gentleman than a rock star; but the new GT V8 S should add a little more urgency to the driving experience.
As the entry point to Ferrari ownership, the 2014 California balances performance, style, and practicality surprisingly well.

The Maserati GranTurismo mates serene yet sporty handling with a beautiful Ferrari V-8 engine note for one fabulous luxury coupe.
