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 M3, as toe-to-toe, we preferred the Mercedes over the previous-generation M3 coupe in many respects.

Whether the next generation of the upcoming 2015 C-Class will be able to bring the same level of fight to the new M4 remains to be seen--Mercedes still has to launch the standard version of the new C.

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--in fact, you'd be hard-pressed to go wrong with any of these choices.

The 2015 BMW M4 promises to be the most technologically advanced and quickest of its ex-3-Series line, but we'll have to test it for ourselves to render judgment.

Supple and sleek, the Audi A5 coupe and convertible get more rational to us as they reach into S5 and RS 5 territory.
