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 Audi A4 has a long-running feud with its German rivals from Mercedes and BMW, and lately Cadillac's joined the fray.

The BMW 3-Series is still the most popular with the traditional crowd of driving enthusiasts, though the latest 3-Series has become heavier and quite a bit more expensive; its turbocharged inline-six offers brilliant power, however.

The C-Class received some extensive changes for 2012, including a new base turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the C250, so it's now pretty much up to snuff with the A4's more fuel-efficient sensibilities.

Meanwhile, the Cadillac ATS is GM's best small luxury car ever, with remarkable handling and the top-notch CUE infotainment system.

This year the Infiniti G37 becomes the Q50, and gets far more interesting, with true design flair and a new hybrid model.

Acura's TL is worth a look: it has a somewhat roomier backseat, a composed ride, and good handling, especially in all-wheel-drive versions.
