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 S4's chief rivals are the BMW 3-Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class; both sedans offer a range of powertrains.

By all rights, the Audi S4 competes best against the BMW M3 in performance and the BMW 335i in price-and enthusiasts rave over both BMWs for rippling powertrain muscle and captivating rear-drive handling.

The Lexus and Infiniti sedans are new to the sport-sedan game, the Lexus capped by a shrieking IS-F edition and the Infiniti G37 without a hyper-performer, but with some of the ride and handling magic of the BMW.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class tops out with the C63 AMG sedan, but even the base C350 has more capable handling than before; however, rear-seat room is still cramped and its interior styling a little complex.

The last challenger in this class is the charming Cadillac CTS, the glitziest car in this group, and one of the headiest performers in CTS-V trim.

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