TCC Rating
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 Q50 has some NBA-sized shoes to fill, succeeding the well-loved G37 sedan.

The Q50 is a gorgeous car, which lends it an edge on its German rivals, though it still lacks the prestige of a BMW 3-Series or a Mercedes-Benz C-Class--not to mention a true challenger for the M3 or C63 AMG.

The Lexus IS makes bold progress this year too, though on first look, it's a pretty afterthought compared to the knockout Q50.

Finally, there's the Audi A4; trimmed out as an S4, it's more a contender for the MBAs and partner-track types who grok to these cars.

The Cadillac ATS might remains its closest rival, but we have to reserve judgment on how the two match up until we can get some time on our favorite canyon roads.
