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.

Nissan's 370Z Roadster is even more powerful than the 2013 Boxster, but it's not nearly as light or nimble, nor as luxurious; the Infiniti G37 Convertible matches the 370Z's power, and while it closes the gap in terms of luxury, remains heavy and large-feeling in comparison to the Boxster.

The BMW Z4 is also potent, particularly in top-spec trim, and is perhaps even more passenger-friendly than the Porsche, but lacks its dynamic, truly sporty character.

The Audi TT does luxury and style as well as the Boxster does, but its nose-heavy balance and front-biased power delivery likewise bring it up short for the true driving aficionado.

The 2013 Audi TT RS is the star on track, but all TT models offer fun and efficiency, plus a welcome dash of style.

TCC Rating
The 2013 BMW Z4 is spirited and purposeful, and balances fun and comfort quite well, but it's pricier than other roadsters.

TCC Rating
While the performance-per-dollar value of the 2013 Nissan 370Z remains largely intact, enabling it to play with more expensive sports cars for less money, rising prices narrow that advantage.
