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 Nissan 370Z is a relatively unique combination of true sports car construction and affordable price in a nearly grand-touring package.

Despite the technological differences in the suspension, the Ford Mustang is a very similar performance and value proposition, with a much higher upper limit for those able to spend for the GT500.

Hyundai's Genesis Coupe offers its own take on moder two-door styling, but lacks some of the refinement and upper-end performance of the Nissan.

Infiniti's Q60, formerly known as the G37 coupe and convertible, is essentially a match for the 370Z on performance, with a more premium take on styling and equipment throughout, but at a higher price point.

The Porsche Boxster and Cayman are lighter and nimbler than the 370Z thanks to their mid-engine design and Porsche-tuned suspensions, and while the duo from Stuttgart set the benchmark in the mid-range sports car segment, the performance and luxury come at a premium price.
