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 BMW X1's size and price put it in a segment without many natural competitors--other than its corporate cousin, the MINI Countryman.

The MINI's built on an unrelated platform, but isn't much bigger than the X1.

Still it yields a little more interior space, though its styling isn't quite as harmonious, and yet it offers a top option of a turbo four with a manual transmission and a new John Cooper Works sport edition.

The Range Rover Evoque is far more expensive than the base X1, but it's also more spacious.

It comes only with a turbo four engine, but it's a knockout in terms of style, and its choice of three- or five-door body styles could make a difference in toting passengers on a regular basis.

For something in the same pricing range but with far more luxury content, you might look at a mass-market vehicle like the Ford Escape.

It's in the same performance and size niche, has excellent handling--and for the X1's price, can be fitted with features like active park assist, MyFord Touch voice controls, leather seating, and a hands-free power tailgate.
