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.

The 2009 Audi A4’s chief rivals are the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

The BMW 3-Series is perhaps the most popular, though in its current edition, it’s become heavier and quite expensive, yet its turbocharged in-line six offers brilliant power.

The Mercedes C-Class has more capable handling than before, but rear-seat room is still cramped and its interior styling a little complex.

The Infiniti G35 sports BMW-like handling with a distinctly Japanese flair, while the Cadillac CTS is perhaps GM’s best effort yet, with remarkable European-style handling, ample V-6 power, and a world-class entertainment system.

More sport, more luxury, and more features for the money make the new 2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class a more attractive possibility.
