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.

The Aston Martin Vantage range offers similar performance to many sports cars, but with its unique looks, exclusive name, and relatively high price tag, it's almost in a niche of its own.

Porsche's 911 is a more practical, but also more pedestrian alternative, despite offering even better sports car performance and far better gas mileage.

Maserati's GranTurismo captures a similar sense of style and flair, filtered through an Italian perspective, as does the Ferrari California.

At this end of the market, the choice comes down to personal taste more than any definining performance or equipment characteristic.

The 2014 Aston Martin Vantage isn't the rarest of the brand's offerings, but it might be the most fun--and the best value.

The 2014 Porsche 911 range spans a broad spectrum, but somehow manages to hit exactly the right marks at each point, balancing performance, features, and practicality almost perfectly.
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.
