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.

Two-seat convertibles dripping with power and great bloodlines all owe something to the Porsche Boxster.

BMW's Z4 has edgy styling, fantastic dynamics, and a powerful M companion, but a busy interior.

The MINI Cooper Convertible actually seats four, but you'll do better to consider it a two-seater; its convertible top is clever, the shape is instantly recognizable, and performance with the supercharged S is blistering.

Nissan's 350Z roadster has raw power and clawlike traction, while Audi's TT roadster gets all-wheel drive and a big V-6 on its features list.

The TT is a little more engaging to drive than before, but it doesn’t stand out in the crowd quite like the original one did when it was new.

The 2008 MINI Cooper Convertible brings top-down fun to the already entertaining MINI hatchback.
