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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class competes with entry-, mid- and high-performance compact luxury sedans and coupes.

With its turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the C250 is more of a direct rival with the Audi A4 and BMW 320i and 328i models.

Standard equipment is similar across all models, though you'll find Audi's quattro all-wheel drive on many of the A4 models, which come with arguably better interiors.

The A4 may not carry quite the same image of prestige found on the C-Class.

BMW's 3-Series is sportier and more comfortable now more than ever.

The Lexus IS has been redesigned for 2014, and it's handsome and legitimately sporty.

The Acura TSX is also worth considering, though doesn't have the same heavy, rear-drive feel that you'll find the in C-Class.

The 2014 Audi A4 and S4 are trim, tech-savvy alternatives to the usual German luxury sedans, and to one stunningly good American one.

The 2014 BMW 3-Series retains its sporting heritage, but has grown to become a high-tech, spacious, comfortable, and safe range of vehicles.

With a hot new look, a Hybrid, some world-first technology, and much-improved cabin refinement--combined with a sharp, eager driving character--the 2014 Infiniti Q50 seeks new sport-sedan believers.
