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 BMW 3-Series is the G37 Sedan's model natural rival; like the G37, it has head-of-the-class handling ability, with a poise and balance that builds confidence.

TheCarConnection.com's editors dare say they like the steering feel of the 2009 G37 Sedan even better than that in the latest 3-Series.

But compared to the G37, the 3-Series comes across as a more refined, more composed car in such respects as ride and noise.

The new Audi A4 is an even more refined competitor; its beautiful interior leads the group, with top-notch materials and a cohesive design inside and out.

With its new rear-biased Quattro all-wheel-drive system and a greatly improved weight balance, it's a blast to drive as well.

The Lexus IS is competent, but just not up to the lofty standards of the other vehicles in this group; its interior is a bit cramped and lacking in personality, and it just doesn't feel as spirited overall.

The Subaru Legacy is another alternative; in track-worthy Legacy GT Spec.B trim, the Legacy has the goods to keep up with the G37 on a twisty road.

But with 85 more horsepower, the G37 will leave it in the dust on straightaways.

The Spec.B also isn't any cheaper than the Infiniti, and you get much better dealer service from the luxury marque.
