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.

With its new engine, the Ford Mustang V-6 is no longer the rental cruiser as before; it’s now a worthy rival to the likes of the Nissan 370Z and Hyundai Genesis, although the 370Z still feels lighter, sharper, and more like an all-out sports car.

As for the V-8 Mustang GT, it now feels like more of a serious performance coupe and less of a mere muscle machine.

It’s just as quick as the Camaro SS—perhaps faster by some measures—and we like its rev-happy character and wonderful sound a bit better.

Factor in the improvements in fuel economy, the value for the money, and the reasonably comfortable cabin—plus features like SYNC and MyRide—and the 2011 Ford Mustang looks like a much stronger contender in every way.

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 $22,000, the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0t represents a heck of a performance value.

A great performance car that starts just under $30,000, the 2010 Nissan 370Z comes close enough to Porsche performance to make you wonder.
