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 clean-diesel Volkswagen Jetta TDI delivers real-world highway fuel economy in the 40s (usually far in excess of its EPA ratings), with cleaner emissions than diesels of the past.

It's a sportier choice for highway driving.

The Civic Hybrid's stablemate, the Honda Civic GX, runs on natural gas rather than gasoline.

Though it has a rather short range, it offers good power and fuel economy, and it's actually the cleanest Civic on the road.

Plus, aside from the fueling process, you'd never know from behind the wheel that it's not a gas-engine car.

Finally, the Civic Hybrid's main rival is probably the all-new Toyota Prius, the hybrid vehicle pioneer that's now in its third generation.

The latest Prius has excellent interior room and even better fuel economy, along with hatchback utility, but its plus is the same as its minus: Everyone will know you're driving a hybrid.
