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 Honda Fit feels a class ahead the rest of the vehicles this size, so it's worth checking out when considering the Accent, especially if you're looking at a better-equipped one such as the SE.

The Fit has a more flexible seating arrangement and much perkier, more refined performance, and it's way better for safety.

The Toyota Yaris still reigns as one of the more stylish alternatives, with its upright design and center-mounted instrument cluster.

It also brings Toyota's strong reputation for small-car reliability and longevity.

For 2011, the Ford Fiesta is the new entry in this class, and it's especially stylish and sophisticated, with good handling and a friskier feel.

The Chevrolet Aveo offers two different body styles and a frugal four-cylinder, but it's still not remotely competitive with the class leaders like the Fit or Yaris.

Another alternative is the Kia Rio; it's essentially the same car as the Hyundai Accent, but the more expensive Rio is also offered in a Rio5 wagon and feels a slight bit sportier.

Look an all new Rio as well as an all-new Accent for 2012.

The 2011 Honda Fit is like a mini-minivan in some respects, with an incredibly space-efficient design; yet it's peppy, frugal, and fun to drive.

The 2011 Kia Rio has a perky driving feel and roomy interior, though the lack of refinement, low safety scores, and dated styling limit its appeal.

The 2011 Toyota Yaris is a great city car for cost-conscious commuters, though those who expect a top-notch list of connectivity features will be disappointed.
