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.

Like the 3-Series, the 2008 Audi A5 has a very understated appearance, but while the A5's interior is more stylish and inviting, the 3-Series interior is a bit more conservative.

The 3-Series has nimbler handling than the A5, and the base 328i accelerates almost as quickly as the A5's only engine, but the A5 has a roomier trunk than the 3-Series or other rivals.

The Infiniti G37 Coupe has a firmer ride and sharper steering like that of the 3-Series, but it's not quite as comfortable as either coupe, and its interior can be noisy.

The CLK has the most dated appearance of these three, in a fickle area of the market where buyers must typically be seen in what's new and fresh.

The Infiniti G37 Coupe is the best-selling coupe in the segment for a number of good reasons: it’s incredibly fast and handles well, and it’s good-looking in a well-heeled way.
