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.

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 Volvo C70 is tighter and more handsomely built than the Eos, but its high-strung turbo engines aren't as relaxed.

The Saab 9-3 is also another good, practical choice—with an especially roomy trunk—and due to its soft top, its top-up driving experience includes a bit more road noise.

Other four-seat convertibles like the Pontiac G6 and Chrysler Sebring offer folding hardtops, but their fit and finish fall far below the standard set by the Eos.

TCC Rating
The 2009 Volkswagen Eos isn't sexy, and it's one of the most practical choices among convertibles and there's a lot to like.
6.8
/ 10
TCC Rating
The 2009 Pontiac G6 models have appealing styling inside and out, but they fail to wow in most other respects.
7.6
/ 10
TCC Rating
Despite rather conservative styling, the 2009 Saab 9-3 is one of the boldest performers in its class.
7.0
/ 10
TCC Rating
The 2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible takes two steps back in styling and no steps forward in handling or performance.
8.2
/ 10
TCC Rating
The 2008 Volvo C70 feels light and gets lighter with the top down -- just don’t plan on taking many friends or much cargo along for the ride.
