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.

Though it's closer in size to the next class up of German and Japanese cars, the Cadillac CTS-V is priced on par with the more compact alternatives.

The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, for example, offers similar levels of style and handling, but with significantly less horsepower.

Lexus's IS-F is likewise close on paper, but comes up short on power and on comfort in the real world.

Audi's S4 uses a considerably less-powerful supercharged V-6, but offers a very well-executed interior and more subdued, but still sporty, exterior design.

The BMW M3 is even more razor-edged than the CTS-V when it comes to handling, and it's very quick, but it gives up nearly 140 horsepower and some rear-seat space.

The Infiniti G37 IPL is a relative newcomer, and like the Audi S4, it's significantly outclassed in terms of power, though being lighter and smaller, it is also nimbler than the Cadillac.
