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 2014 F-Type revives Jaguar's true sportscar heritage--its own XK has two tiny, vestigial rear seats, and that's enough to disqualify it to some on principle alone.

Still, it's a beautiful piece of aluminum sculpture in its own right, though it's considerably bigger and heavier than the coming F-Type.

The BMW Z4 is closer in size and mission, but doesn't have the heritage of the Jaguar roadster--and both it and the Mercedes-Benz SLK have power folding hardtops, not strictly in the traditional, classic sports-car mold, either.

All told, the Porsche Boxster may end up being the F-Type's closest competitor; it's mid-engined, but has a folding fabric roof, seats two, and bristles with amazing grip and acceleration that doesn't need nostalgia for the 550 Spyders of the past to sell it--though it also has that hazy memory in its corner.
