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.

The BMW Z4 offers strong performance, a more passenger-friendly interior, and a standard retractable hardtop, but its bold exterior styling might be too much for some.

The TT was just restyled in 2008, with a more conservative yet still fashionable look that may appeal more to enthusiasts; it drives more like a true sportscar as well.

Nissan's new 370Z roadster has raw power, abundant traction, and its own brand of stunning looks, while Audi's TT roadster features all-wheel drive and a big V-6 among its strengths.

Purists might actually prefer the simplicity of the Mazda Miata, which eschews most of the luxury and power of the Porsche, but costs about half as much as the Boxster.

Still, with a high-revving four-cylinder engine and no-nonsense interior, the Miata has a charm of its own.

The 2011 BMW Z4 is an exhilarating sports car, and one of the better choices for touring, but next to other roadsters it's pricey.

A great performance car that starts just under $30,000, the 2010 Nissan 370Z comes close enough to Porsche performance to make you wonder.
