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 Call it fashionable or not; the 2013 Scion xB offers box-on-wheels versatility, easy maneuverability, and a strong list of features, all at a very affordable price. The 2013 Nissan Cube is boxy alright, but in a way that prioritizes style and fashion, not outright practicality.
