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.

TCC’s Bottom Line The 2014 Chevrolet Spark enters the minicar fold with a space-efficient package and some of the best infotainment and connectivity technology in any affordable car; and while performance of the standard Spark is lackluster, the Spark EV breaks out as one of the best-performing, most efficient electric cars. Too bad the EV is offered on such a limited basis. The 2014 Mitsubishi i-MiEV is the least expensive electric car on the market, and it can carry four adults despite its tiny size and nimbleness around-town, though it's less good at highway speeds.
