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.

Due to its segment-straddling nature, the Audi TT competes with a range of compact luxury coupes and roadsters as well as true sports cars.

The Mercedes-Benz SLK, for example, is somewhat heavier and more sedate, but offers a folding hardtop, an AMG performance option, and a different sense of style.

The all-new 2013 Porsche Boxster matches the Audi's luxury (or beats it), with even nimbler handling and, except for the TT RS, more power, though it's far more expensive.

Nissan's 370Z is much more affordable, on the other hand, with plenty of power, handling, and style, but at the cost of interior quality, noise, and refinement.

The BMW Z4 spans a similar range to the Audi TT, with a new 2.0-liter turbo engine and a potent 3.0-liter turbo six-cylinder both available, but the Z4's overall feel is more grand tourer than nimble sports car.

The 2013 Audi TT RS is the star on track, but all TT models offer fun and efficiency, plus a welcome dash of style.

TCC Rating
The 2013 BMW Z4 is spirited and purposeful, and balances fun and comfort quite well, but it's pricier than other roadsters.

TCC Rating
The 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLK is the least polarizing of the roadsters, but there's enough urgency to go with its elegant, mini-SL charm.

While the performance-per-dollar value of the 2013 Nissan 370Z remains largely intact, enabling it to play with more expensive sports cars for less money, rising prices narrow that advantage.

TCC Rating
The 2013 Porsche Boxster is one of the most fun, stylish, and luxurious roadsters available.
