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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

The 2014 Dodge Dart is an attractive, sometimes entertaining car, especially in its sportiest trims, and it's likely to score well with shoppers who need something economical, but crave style and technology above all else.

The Toyota Corolla has been redesigned for 2014, and it's considerably more attractive than past models–and even includes standard LED headlights.

The Honda Civic gets decent fuel economy and comes with much-improved interior after last year's update.

The Hyundai Elantra earns high marks for value, style, and overall popularity–dealers can't seem to keep them on their lots.

The Ford Focus feels upscale by comparison to the others, and it drives and handles wells, too.

That all comes at a cost, though, since the Focus can touch $30,000 with its most-equipped models.

Finally, the Chevrolet Cruze is a handsome, solid performer offered with efficient turbocharged four-cylinder gas or diesel engines and one of the quietest rides in the segment.

Remember the Neon? The 2014 Dodge Dart brings back some of its personality, but in a decidedly better package.

The 2014 Chevy Cruze is comfortable and practical--and now it offers a diesel engine that can return 40 mpg in real-world use.

Even without considering the top-performance ST, the 2014 Ford Focus is one of the best-driving small cars on the market--with the impression of being an accessible premium car, not a spruced-up econobox.

The 2014 Honda Civic brings better refinement back to the lineup, but there's more to come, we're told.

The Hyundai Elantra already had the bases covered--we'll see if a new engine and new tuning draws it even closer to best in class.

The 2014 Toyota Corolla keeps its frugal, responsible core but adds a lot more verve.
