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.

Right up against the BMW 3-Series is where Infiniti wants to be with its G37 Coupe; and for the most part, this model measures up, providing a sharp, athletic driving experience, as well as a design and overall feel that simultaneously channel true sports cars and more plush luxury coupes.

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 from Mercedes, now that the C-Class comes in two-door form--even as an AMG.

The pretty Audi A5 comes up a little empty-headed when it comes to performance, but its high-performance S5 variant is a fast, mature touring car.

Lexus' IS sedans and convertibles are also worth a look, though they feel small and tight, and with the smaller V-6, underpowered.

The Nissan 370Z is another alternative that only the die-hard enthusiast crowd might consider alongside the G37; it's not as refined or as luxurious as the G37 Coupe, but it's a brilliant performer.

Just beware that engine and road noise are omnipresent—to a much greater degree than in the G37.

A pretty, talented family of coupes and convertibles, the A5 lineup ranges from the black-sheep CVT Cabrio to the unabashedly awesome RS5.

The 2013 BMW 3-Series is safe, fuel-efficient, and well-connected, yet it delivers the class-leading performance and handling that enthusiasts have come to expect.

TCC Rating
The 2013 Lexus IS 250 and IS 350 look like exciting sport sedans--especially in F Sport guise--though they're not as fun to drive or even as fuel-efficient as other small sport sedans.

For those who are image-conscious yet value-conscious, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz C Class sedans and coupes make a lot of sense.

While the performance-per-dollar value of the 2013 Nissan 370Z remains largely intact, enabling it to play with more expensive sports cars for less money, rising prices narrow that advantage.
