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 Saab 9-3 Convertible is a good practical alternative with a larger trunk, which can be attributed to the soft top.

On the downside, this means more road noise with the roof closed.

However, Saab's future looms uncertain this year, so get one now if you like it.

The Volvo C70 is another car that is tighter and more handsomely built than the Eos, but its range of turbocharged engines isn’t as refined.

The Volvo has a more settled, mature ride than the VW, though.

The Chrysler Sebring also offers a folding hardtop, but it’s not nearly in the same league as the Eos in terms of fit and finish.

The BMW 3-Series Convertible is in a whole other price range, but you get what you pay for, with a large leap ahead in driving refinement and high-performance driving poise.

One strong argument for the Eos is fuel economy; with an EPA-rated 30 mpg on the highway, it's one of the more efficient convertibles—except for the very small but fun Mini Cooper S Convertible.

The 2010 BMW 3-Series upholds its legacy of superb handling, excellent performance, and high quality, though small rear seats and fussy controls are minor flaws.

Part coupe and part convertible, the 2010 Volvo C70 is a bit plain on the outside, but offers a clean, well-turned interior and a strong overall package.

The 2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible takes two steps back in styling and no steps forward in handling or performance.
