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.

Mazda is working on an updated RX-8, and these spy photos show off some of the changes the Japanese automaker is planning for its four-door sports coupe.

Mazda has confirmed that the "heavily revised" RX-8 will be shown at the 2008 Detroit auto show this coming January.

The revamped RX-8 will make its debut in the first quarter of 2009, as a 2010 model. Although the basic layout and seating configuration will remain the same, we’re expecting this to be a rather major update. Aside from the evident cosmetic changes under wraps, we’re expecting some improvements to its rotary engine, particularly for the cars equipped with a manual transmission.

Although not yet confirmed, a convertible version of the RX-8 is possible for the 2011 or 2012 model year.
