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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

The Lamborghini Aventador sits in a unique position in the market at the moment; Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren offer even more expensive, more exclusive hypercars, but nothing that directly meets the Aventador's $400,000 challenge.

There are cars that are similar in performance, and though many offer their own high style, they don't aspire to the attention-getting extremes of the Aventador.

The Porsche 911 and Audi R8, for example, are both very fast sports cars with a dose of practicality and comfort the Lamborghini can't imagine, but neither is quite as quick as an Aventador, even in their most exotic forms.

The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT, in either gullwing coupe or sleek, low-slung roadster forms, has a future-meets-past quality to it the Aventador doesn't, but even with 583 horsepower, it's still short of the Aventador's raw force.

Then there's the Ferrari 458 Italia, which gives up little in style, though it's of a different school, and what it does lack in acceleration compared to the Aventador, it more than makes up in connectedness and communication with the driver.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT is fast, fun, and luxurious, while the Black Series is in a league above; just don't expect S-Class levels of comfort and equipment.

The 2014 Porsche 911 range spans a broad spectrum, but somehow manages to hit exactly the right marks at each point, balancing performance, features, and practicality almost perfectly.
