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 Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky are fraternal twins from General Motors; they come with less-refined four-cylinder engines, including optional turbocharged models, and they have great handling, but their cargo space is extremely limited as in the S2000.

The Mazda Miata is also a basic, elemental sportscar with a four-cylinder engine and a manual transmission; a new retractable-hardtop version offers all-season driving for its fans.

Both the Mazda Miata and the Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky offer better interior room, as well as a smoother ride than the Honda S2000.

TCC Rating
The 2009 Honda S2000 is a true sportscar, in the sense that it trades comfort and refinement for speed and performance.

Practicality and comfort take second billing to sportscar performance and flashy looks in the 2009 Pontiac Solstice.

TCC Rating
The 2009 Saturn Sky looks great and in the Red Line trim is a blast to drive, but its ergonomics and quality keep it from truly competing with the Miata.
