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.

Among rear-drive sportscars with muscle-car-style performance, the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger are obvious choices here.

Both come with a range of V-6 and V-8 engines; the Mustang also sports a convertible edition and a choice of manual and automatic transmissions.

The BMW Z4 is available as a coupe or roadster with six-cylinder and M-Series power.

The Infiniti G37 shares some mechanicals with the Nissan 350Z, but offers two tiny rear seats and a more luxurious interior, not to mention a far superior dealer experience.
