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 competition heats up for the Camaro for 2011, as Ford has extensively refreshed its Mustang and installed two much more powerful (yet also very fuel-efficient) engines in the pony car.

The 2011 Ford Mustang steps up with a standard 305-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 and 31-mpg highway fuel economy rating, or the rorty new 412-hp, 5.0-liter V-8, plus body and suspension improvements to match the interior upgrades that carry over from 2010.

What it means is that the 2011 Mustang is a much worthier rival.

Muscle-car enthusiasts will want to study up on the spec differences, but weighed back-to-back, the Mustang is a remarkably more spacious, livable package, and a blast to drive in GT form with the new 5.0.

The Mustang also stands out for its superior technology, namely the SYNC connectivity system.

The Challenger, in comparison, feels considerably larger, while the 370Z is an edgy traditional sports car with a tight interior, and the Genesis Coupe isn't that much larger.

The 2011 Chevy Camaro is a head-turner with scorching performance, especially in SS form. But the trade-off is a big drop in practicality and comfort.

The 2011 Dodge Challenger has retro style and blistering muscle-car performance in spades, but it's a surprisingly well-equipped, comfortable touring coupe to boot.

TCC Rating
The 2011 Ford Mustang lives up to all those juvenile, tire-smoking pony-car expectations; at the same time, it’s an unexpectedly capable, sophisticated coupe.

For road or track, the 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is one of the best performance values on the market.

A great performance car that starts just under $30,000, the 2011 Nissan 370Z comes close enough to Porsche performance to make you wonder.
