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.

TCC's Bottom Line From true economy car to sophisticated junior sport sedan or sporty hatchback, the 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer has it covered—albeit with a few flaws. Standard all-wheel drive and strong performance and safety credentials give the 2011 Subaru Impreza and Outback Sport some meaningful advantages over most other small cars, though poor fuel economy stands as a blemish.
