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 2010 Aston Martin DB9 coupe and Volante roadster continue into the new model year with relatively few changes.

The latest generation of the legendary sports car made famous both on the world's race tracks and on the silver screen as James Bond's ride of choice in the 1960s made its debut in 2005, as the replacement for the former DB7 Vantage.

The rear-drive DB9 is constructed as an aluminum-bonded unibody that's lighter than a conventional steel-bodied sportscar of the same size might be. Aston also say that makes it more rigid, for greater agility and ride comfort.A 450-horsepower V-12 engine is claimed to be able to reach a top speed of 180 mph, and it can be mated to either a six-speed-manual transmission or a ZF-supplied automatic gearbox that can either operate in fully automatic mode or be taken through the gears manually via push-button controls and employs so-called "shift-by-wire" operation. The DB9 rides on an independent double-wishbone suspension system and large 19-inch wheels and tires, which should translate into tenacious cornering abilities.

TheCarConnection hasn't reviewed the DB9 since its introduction. We've given it a tentative rating here, and will revisit the numbers once we're able to drive a more current model.
