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 list of car nameplates with decades-long histories is short.

Along with the 2008 MINI Cooper Convertible, the Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible waxes nostalgic but offers modern-day conveniences like turbocharged engines, a choice of transmissions, a nifty convertible top, and good safety performance.

The Ford Mustang Convertible is also offered with a V-8 engine and comes in many special editions, like the new Bullitt.

The Porsche Boxster is far pricier than the MINI Cooper, but harks back to the Porsche Spyders of the 1950s and injects modern power with a flat-six engine.
