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.

Over the past few years, there's been a new series of muscle car battles, as Ford and Chevy duke it out to give their retro-looking pony cars modern muscle performance.

The Chevrolet Camaro drives surprisingly well, though it's a tight fit inside and headroom is limited; there's a 580-hp ZL1 model that's a legitimate thriller behind the wheel.

The Mustang is another one that's shockingly quick in its Shelby and Boss 302 models, all while offering an ergonomically-designed interior and nearly as much technology as the Challenger.

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe isn't necessarily a pony car, but with rear-wheel drive and an affordable price, it fits as competition against the Challenger V-6.

If you're looking for better handling and sharper driving dynamics, perhaps consider the relatively light, far more raw Nissan 370Z.

The 2014 Dodge Challenger feels like a retro-themed touring car in V-6 guise, but choose one of its HEMI-powered models and you have a tire-scorching muscle car on your hands.

The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro may have a somewhat gimmicky wrapper, but in its ZL1 and Z/28 guises especially this muscle machine turns into a serious performance car with truly entertaining handling.
