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 Infiniti G37 Coupe has made one of those rare ascents, taking on BMW on its own turf and mostly meeting those lofty performance targets.

The G37's a strong competitor to BMW's 3-Series coupe, even if the G37's IPL edition isn't in the same league as the multifarious M3.

Both get more heat this year from Mercedes, now that the C-Class comes in two-door form--even as an AMG.

Audi's A5 is pretty, but a little empty-headed when it comes to performance, and Lexus' IS sedans and convertibles are worth a look, though they feel small and tight, and with the smaller V-6, underpowered.

Finally, there's a stalking horse from within: the Nissan 370Z isn't as refined or as luxurious as the G37 Coupe, but it's a brilliant performer, even though its omnipresent engine noise makes us want earplugs as standard equipment.

Both the Audi A5 Coupe and its Cabriolet convertible sibling are striking designs that offer comfortable, easy-to-drive capacity for two people--and four in a pinch

The 2012 BMW 3-Series delivers the class-leading sport-sedan performance and handling enthusiasts have come to expect, yet it makes substantial improvements in fuel-efficiency, active safety, and connectivity.

The 2012 Lexus IS 350 and IS 350 aren't as focused and fun to drive as sport sedans from BMW or Infiniti, though especially in F Sport guise they still look great.

With a new base four-cylinder engine, the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C-Class makes even more sense for value-conscious (yet image-conscious) luxury shoppers.

Performance per dollar, the 2012 Nissan 370Z is a bargain, and it's quick enough in absolute terms to reach toward the domain of much more expensive sports cars.
