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.

Four-seat convertibles can be split into two groups: soft-tops and folding hardtops.

The Audi A5 Cabriolet’s German kin include the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet, which also chooses a soft top over a folding hardtop to keep complexity down.

The remaining vehicles are offered as hardtop convertibles, and the BMW 3-Series Convertible has one of the more pleasing shapes, to go with its tenacious handling.

Both Japanese convertibles are relatively new to the field; the Infiniti’s top-down looks seem superior, while the Lexus’ interior room may offer a bit more space.
