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.

Priced at less than $11,000, including destination, for the SVM hatchback model, the Aveo5 is one of the cheapest vehicles available in the U.S., although base models of the Rio, Accent, and Yaris are in the same price range.

The Rio and Accent, which are mechanically related to each other don't feel quite as roomy, are much more fun to drive than the Aveo, although they have a bit more engine noise from inside the cabin.

The Fit and Yaris feel peppy, light, and nimble on the road, though both can also be noisy inside.

The Yaris hatchback is quite tight on passenger space, while the Fit is cavernous and has an innovative Magic Seat arrangement, along with best-in-class safety.

Of them all, the Versa drives most like a larger vehicle, in a positive sense, with a smooth, settled ride on the highway, as well as a roomy interior.

Nearly all of these vehicles get better fuel economy than the 2008 Chevrolet Aveo.

The 2008 Kia Rio is a good choice among subcompacts and it’s stylish, but standard anti-lock brakes and better side-impact protection would help its case against the Honda Fit.
