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.

The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is a strong alternative to the BMW M4, as toe-to-toe, we preferred the Mercedes over the previous-generation M3 coupe in many respects.

Whether the next generation of the AMG C-Class will be able to bring the same level of fight to the new M4 remains to be seen.

Audi's RS5 is another possible pick in the high-performance sport-luxury coupe segment, bringing with it quattro all-wheel drive and the breathtakingly gorgeous lines shared by all A5-based models.

On the track, or otherwise at the limit, the RS5 may lack some of the bite of the alternatives, but it's by no means a slouch.

The Cadillac CTS-V coupe is in its final run; it's a reasonable alternative to the M4 if you can find one, but it's going away, to be replaced by the ATS-V.

Finally, Porsche's Cayman and Boxster are some of the most brilliant-handling machines in this set, especially in S trim.

They're our pick in this set, and the true sports cars among these entries, too.

The 2015 BMW M4 loses a little bit of weight and its normally aspirated V-8, leaving a potent twin-turbo six and nearly unflappable handling in their place.

The Audi A5 coupe and convertible are sleek and supple, but make the most sense in their S and RS guises.

Forget this model's recent past; the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class takes a half-step up in size and a full step ahead of its peer set in sophistication -- and it's now one very charming luxury car.

The 2015 Porsche Boxster is a relative performance bargain, combining everyday usability with a balanced chassis and sweet engines.

TCC Rating
The 2015 Porsche Cayman remains a focused 911 alternative, at an easier-to-swallow price.
