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.

Bentley's place in the luxury-car ionosphere leaves most shoppers a little breathless, but a few coupes should be on the short what-if list before you sign up for the $200,000 Continental GT or GTC.

Maserati's GranTurismo is significantly less expensive and far more sensually styled, but there's no all-wheel drive, and it doesn't quite have the snob appeal, though its sonorous V-8 and exceptional interior make up much of that difference.

The other big hustler from England is Aston Martin's Virage, and it's an extremely powerful rear-driver with coupe and convertible body styles, and an impeccably styled and finished interior.

For all-wheel drive and better four-seat capacity, there's the Ferrari FF, with its bulbous styling a polarizing factor that undercuts the added value of its prancing-horse badge.

The 2012 Maserati GranTurismo carves out a grand-touring niche for itself with Italian cachet, an earthy Ferrari rumble, and a serene blend of ride and handling.
