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.

Like the passenger accommodations of the BMW, the Porsche 911 has teensy rear seats plus a cold, technical feel, but stunning handling and straight-line performance—especially in Turbo form.

It’s also a bit more practical, thanks to the front and rear cargo compartments.

The Mercedes-Benz SL is a two-seat roadster that also has a bit of a weight problem, and technology invades every driving system—but it comes off as more composed than the 6-Series BMW and sports a folding hardtop.

Jaguar's XKR is a blast to drive; it's the sexiest convertible in this group as well as the best-handling car here—and the closest to a true sportscar despite offering a heap of luxuries.

The technological burden the 2009 BMW 6-Series carries is a distraction from the car’s Herculean performance.

The SL’s new look isn’t to everyone’s liking, but in AMG guise, it’s now more punch than paunch—and a worthy stealth Ferrari-chaser.

The 2009 Porsche 911 is in a class of its own, and if you have your heart set on one, there's very little else to compare it to.
