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 Fit outdoes nearly all of its competitors when it comes to accommodating passengers and cargo.

Those who look for a sprightly feel might also consider the Rio5, but it’s not as refined overall as the fit, nor is the Aveo, which has disappointing performance but a smooth ride.

The xD is the looker of the group, most would agree; and the Yaris is more fuel-efficient, at 29 mpg city, 36 mpg highway, but it gets relatively poor marks for safety.

The 2008 Honda Fit is one of the smallest cars on the road, but it’s fun to drive, huge inside, and a tremendous value.

If most of your driving is around town with little interstate travel, the 2009 Chevrolet Aveo and Aveo5 are worth a look, especially if you want a bow tie out front.

At a bargain price that’s not much more than stripper econoboxes, the 2008 Scion xD is a pretty hot little hatch.
