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 BMW 3-Series, like the new 2015 C-Class is larger and more high-tech than its predecessor was, and offers many of the same benefits--though it lacks some of the higher-end safety electronics found on the Mercedes.

Audi's A4 is equally stylish, with a similar take on turbocharged, all-wheel drive powertrains, but a perhaps more understated presence.

Cadillac's ATS is an engaging sports sedan, with a composed chassis and quality interior, but it, too, lacks many of the more advanced technological features found on the C-Class.

Lexus' IS is more futuristically styled, yet also somewhat less enthusiastically powered, but offers compelling value in the segment.

Infiniti's Q50 exceeds even the C-Class in some technological respects, especially its steering-by-wire system, and it's beautiful to look at, but glitches in the infotainment system have plagued early examples.

Forget this model's recent past; the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class takes a half-step up in size and a full step ahead of its peer set in sophistication -- and it's now one very charming luxury car.

The 2015 Audi A4 and S4 sedans are tech-laden, trim, handsome alternatives to the other expected German cars, as well as one very good American one.

The 2015 BMW 3-Series lineup is a sport sedan at heart, but with Sports Wagon and Gran Turismo (hatchback) models, it's a lot more than that.

The 2015 Infiniti Q50 continues as a more luxurious successor to the fabled G sedan, although in some forms it loses part of the enthusiast flavor of that model.
