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.

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.

Infiniti's G37 is bawdier in every way, with more dramatic styling, a raucous exhaust, and, unfortunately noise within the cabin.

Audi's A4 sedan is an attractively styled option, with more interior space than the BMW, but less power and sportiness.

Mercedes' C-Class sedan (the CLK-Class coupe was deleted in the 2010 model year, replaced by an E-Class Coupe) offers a more comfort-oriented ride, but its materials and quality are top-notch for the segment.

The Audi A5 Coupe and Cabriolet bear one of the most elegant bodies in autodom, and drive with a light, easy touch.
