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.

So far, this decade has looked a bit like the late-1960s muscle-car era all over again--at least if you look at these cars from a distance.

Yet from the driver's seat, each of these models are quite modern, comfortable, and capable.

The 2014 Ford Mustang remains in direct rivalry with the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger, yet while they have those muscle-car roots, they're each very different vehicles.

The V-8 Mustang GT feels like a serious performance car now, and it's just as quick as the Chevrolet Camaro SS, and we like its rev-happy feel a little better.

On the other hand, the Chevrolet Camaro is almost cartoonish, and it makes some seemingly severe sacrifices in seating comfort and cabin layout for its chunky good looks.

You might feel that you sit 'on' (rather than 'in') the Camaro, and the headroom is so limited.

The Dodge Challenger models, on the other hand, are a full size larger and feel much heavier--although they do deliver satisfying Hemi V-8 performance.

Looking at the Mustang V-6 separately, it's a strong competitor to models like the Hyundai Genesis Coupe and Nissan 370Z.

The Z is lighter, more nimble and more like an all-out sports car than the Mustang.

Also, last year the Hyundai Genesis Coupe was refreshed, with stronger new direct-injection engines.

It still lacks the Z's sharp-edged responsiveness, but it's nimble and track-worthy.

The 2014 Ford Mustang delivers some of the best performance-car bang for the buck, all with a level of sophistication that's surprising given the brash sound and classic looks.

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.

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.
