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 2011 Ford Fiesta is Ford's attempt to plant a first-rate competitor into a garden dominated by Asian brands.

While the Honda Fit is priced a bit higher than other entries, it remains the car the Fiesta has to beat; the Fit gets good ratings for its sprightly handling, its uber-flexible and spacious interior, and a solid feel behind the wheel.

While the Nissan Versa is priced quite low, it sacrifices features to get there.

It also rides and handles like a larger, heavier car, lacking the nimble handling that's a pleasure of the best subcompacts.

The Hyundai Accent handles well but isn't particularly comfortable at high speeds.

Finally, the Scion xD feels sporty and offers features galore, but lacks the Fiesta's jaunty styling.

Avoid the aging Chevrolet Aveo, which will be replaced next year.

If you're set on stylish and small, the 2011 Ford Fiesta might be your only choice, though you might miss the solid, roomy feel of a Fit.

The 2010 Chevrolet Aveo and Aveo5 are worth considering if the bulk of your driving is done around the city—but there are plenty of better small-car options that don't cost much more.

Look beyond the appearance of the 2010 Honda Fit, which admittedly won’t quicken pulses. Honda nails the rest with the peppy, spacious, and frugal Fit.

If frugal simplicity and penny-pinching is what you want, the 2010 Hyundai Accent has it.

The 2010 Nissan Versa is one of the best-value cars available on the market. Just remember that at its cheapest, you won’t be getting too much in the way of features.

The 2010 Scion xD is a substantial, feature-laden choice in the econobox class, and buyers can customize to their heart's content.
