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 Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro are classic muscle cars--or pony cars, at least.

Because of their heavier, higher-power natures, the Mustang and Camaro are very different in their driving experience, though both can be very fun and rewarding.

The Nissan 370Z blends some of the FR-S's agility with some of the muscle cars' brawn to yield an fun and unique mix that's almost more affordable grand-tourer than anything else.

Mazda's MX-5 Miata is even lighter (and less powerful) than the Scion FR-S, and while its agility and fun factor are at least as high as the Scion's, the MX-5 is showing its age, while the FR-S is the up-and-comer.

Subaru's BRZ is a twin to the FR-S, with only slight tweaks to suspension calibration and small appearance differences separating the two.

The best reason to buy a BRZ instead of an FR-S is to have factory navigation built-in.

The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro may have a somewhat gimmicky wrapper, but in its ZL1 and Z/28 guises especially this muscle machine turns into a serious performance car with truly entertaining handling.

The 2014 Subaru BRZ can be every bit as thrilling as more powerful, more expensive sports cars. Its light weight, direct steering and excellent suspension make it a blast to drive.
