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.

The Verano's premium feel and lighter pricetag are a blue-ocean approach that doesn't have many direct competitors just yet.

If it were our cash, we'd cross-shop the Acura TSX sedan and wagon, which have 201 hp, good handling and more interior space, but dated connectivity and styling.

The Lexus IS is reshaped and redirected more firmly at sporty drivers, but has intentions of competing with the BMW 3-Series.

The Audi A3 is in its last year before being replaced by a new sedan; the hatchback has pert handling and available turbodiesel power, but high prices.

The biggest challenge to the Verano is the new front-drive Mercedes CLA; it's firm and taut in a way the Verano is more comforting, but with a base price of about $30,000 it's an intriguing alternative with a sterling badge on the hood.

Mild or slightly spicy--in either flavor, the 2014 Buick Verano delivers long on comfort, without bowing to sport-sedan cliches.

With exception to those green-car enthusiasts out there, we think the 2014 Acura TSX strikes a solid compromise for shoppers interested in a practical, sporty, premium compact sedan.

The 2014 Acura ILX is a nice, balanced compact luxury sedan for those who put the emphasis on comfort and feature, not true sport-sedan reflexes.

The 2014 Lexus IS is an important car for the brand, and at first impression, the redesign is off to a good start.

The 2013 Audi A3 wears its age well, and remains a sporty, versatile choice for compact hatchback buyers who can afford a little luxury.
