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 new Volkswagen Jetta TDI sports real-world highway fuel economy in the 40s, with cleaner emissions than diesels of the past, and it’s a much more settled choice for highway driving.

The Honda Civic GX uses natural gas, not gasoline, to provide good power and fuel economy; its range is rather short, but it’s even more economical to run than a hybrid if you have access.

The Toyota Prius has been a pioneer in hybrid vehicles.

The current Prius has good interior room and strong fuel economy, along with hatchback utility; an all-new Prius is expected very soon, as a 2010 model.
