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 2010 Audi A5/Cabriolet has a very understated appearance, as do its direct rivals from BMW.

The BMW 3-Series continues to set the standard for handling, though the folding-hardtop convertible has gotten quite heavy, with duller responses.

Its interior is more conservative than the Audi two-doors' cockpits, too.

The Infiniti G37 has a firm ride and sharp steering, but it's not quite as comfortable as either the Audi or the BMW coupe, and it's a little noisier.

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and the forthcoming 2011 E-Class Cabriolet have a new hard-edged style that's not universally appealing, but its dynamics are a step up from the former CLK-Class coupe and convertible.
