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 2014 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 Q60 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.
