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 Hyundai Genesis Coupe lands in an interesting, value-focused area of the market, and it matches up pretty well against the wide range of vehicles that occupy the $25k to $35k range.

If you're willing to pay a little more than that, the Infiniti Q60 Coupe should, like its G37 Coupe predecessor, prove a surprisingly strong rival—although we've noted that the Genesis steering has never been as nuanced.

And compared to the Nissan 370Z, the Genesis Coupe feels far more sophisticated, without the choppy ride and overwhelming road noise in the two-seat Z.

The Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S are perhaps the biggest threats to the Genesis Coupe; they sacrifice straight-line brute force for a nimble, light, and balanced character that simply gives the driver a lot more confidence.

The 2015 Ford Mustang, as well, with its upcoming 2.3-liter turbocharged four, should move even closer in the market to the Genesis Coupe; we're eager to drive the '15 Stang and make that comparison.

Other alternatives include the BMW 335i Coupe, although it’s much more expensive, and at the low end of the Gen Coupe market, the Honda Civic Si and Nissan Altima Coupe.

Everyday comfortable, yet track-ready, the 2014 Hyundai Genesis is one of the better performance-car picks if your budget is tight.
The 2015 Ford Mustang finally makes the rear-end switch--and the SVO's back, at least in spirit.

Following improvements that hit all the right spots, the 2014 Nissan Altima is a solid choice for those who don't mind a CVT.

The 2014 Subaru BRZ can be every bit as thrilling as more powerful, more expensive sports cars. Its light weight, direct steering and excellent suspension make it a blast to drive.
