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.

While you might expect pint-sized cars to get super-sized fuel economy, that's not necessarily the way it works in this segment.

The 2015 Fiat 500 competes mostly with other cars that focus on fitting into small parking spaces in the city–as well as creating the most cargo space out of their tiny cabins.

The Honda Fit is best at the latter, thanks to its fold-away seating and monstrous interior space.

The Toyota Yaris has a record for reliability, but looks a little plain in comparison to the Fiat.

The Ford Fiesta is slightly larger and has more doors–plus it's offered in a tremendously exciting Fiesta ST guise.

The MINI Cooper comes with equal doses of charm, but for a considerably higher price.

There's also the Smart ForTwo, which lacks the rear seat.

Finally, the Chevy Spark might be the most well-rounded vehicle in the segment, but still doesn't carry the same flair for style that you'll find in the Fiat 500.

The 2015 Fiesta lineup is proof that small cars don't have to be feature free, and you can even have a bit of fun while saving fuel.

The 2015 Honda Fit might not up the ante in sportiness, but it offers up exactly what urban small-car shoppers want in safety and convenience features—and it's still as good as some utility vehicles or vans with its wondrous, unmatched Magic Seat setup.

The 2014 MINI Cooper is a fun, smart, and practical way to get around, without giving up its sporty, quirky side.
