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.

Subcompact models used to be unexciting, scaled down versions of larger models--in most cases, with all the best features missing.

But the latest small cars are different, with smart design and clever features, as well as an engaging driving experience.

The Honda Fit is the reigning top performer in this class, with excellent handling, good safety, and a responsive, nimble driving feel.

The Fiesta beats the Honda for cohesive style and design, inside and out, but the Fit has lots more interior space and versatility.

The Nissan Versa was redesigned last year, but it's become more of a traditional economy car.

The Hyundai Accent is another great option, with a comfortable ride and very efficient direct-injection engine.

The Toyota Yaris is another interesting alternative, and while its stylish exterior might pull you in, ir's just not that engaging to drive.

Perhaps the surprise of this segment this past model year has been the Chevrolet Sonic; it's one of the best subcompacts for handling, styling, and safety, even though it's not the most spacious or versatile.

Affordable small cars don't need to be bland, whether in appearance or from behind the wheel. And the 2014 Ford Fiesta is proof of that.

The 2014 Chevrolet Sonic is light-years ahead of its Aveo predecessor, which Chevy hopes you'll forget. It's stylish, comfortable, drives nicely, and has excellent safety ratings and infotainment features.

The 2014 Hyundai Accent isn't exciting to drive, but it's one of the most comfortable, well-equipped cars its size--and still a great value.

As one of the lowest-priced new cars, the 2014 Nissan Versa and Versa Note are best matched up against a slightly upmarket late-model used car; while it's not sporty, it is roomy, with good packaging and lots of available technology.

Sadly, the 2014 Scion xD is less fun to drive than to look at, though it's spacious for its size.

If you're not turned off by the utilitarian look of the 2013 Honda Fit, you'll like what you get, which is awesome practicality and space-efficiency, plus some driving verve.
