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 Infiniti G37 has a new, more powerful 332-horsepower engine, but is based on the same excellent-handling FM platform as the G35 before it, with well-balanced sports-sedan styling and proportions, plus available all-wheel drive.

It's also substantially less expensive than the German sedans.

The BMW 3-Series and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class are the benchmarks in the segment, but their higher prices bring their value into question.

Both are available with a range of body style and drivetrain configurations, and their handling and build quality are top-notch.

The Cadillac CTS is also a relative newcomer to the segment, but its low price and excellent feature set make it a good value proposition.
