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.

There aren't many other choices when it comes to high-performance luxury sedans in the BMW M3's size class, but the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is a solid alternative.

With a potent V-8 engine, balanced handling, and track-bred styling, it's as head-turning and as smile-inducing as the last M3--and a new version of the C63 AMG should be on its way within the next year or so.

Audi's S4 is not quite as sharply tuned as the M3 or C63 AMG, or even Audi's own RS5, but if you don't require as much spice with your sugar, the S4's clean aesthetics and refined interior may be more appealing to you.
