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 2013 Hyundai Accent is no longer the price leader it was a few years ago, but it does offer more standard features than nearly all the competition.

It's also now at the top for fuel economy, with its 40-mpg highway rating across the model line.

In other respects the Accent isn't as much of a standout; interior space is somewhat like that of the Honda Fit, but it lacks the Fit's flexible rear seat.

The Ford Fiesta, and its sporties image, Technicolor colors, and techtastic Sync system, make the Accent look 'normal'--which can be a good or bad thing.

The Nissan Versa got a redesign last year, and it became roomier, but it's plain and somewhat ungainly.

Toyota's new Yaris is quite stylish but not nearly as well-equipped as the Accent for the money.

And the Chevrolet Sonic, which was all-new last year, is perhaps the most direct rival to the Accent; it also offers a strong list of features, along with the sort of refinement we don't typically expect from a subcompact.

The 2013 Hyundai Accent is one of the best-equipped small cars, and it gets very good gas mileage, but it's not quite as exciting to drive as it looks.

Small cars don't need to be bland--the 2013 Ford Fiesta proves that with a saucy look and pert handling.

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.

The 2013 Nissan Versa is at its best up against used cars: If you can overlook some cheap-feeling details, it's a reasonably comfortable, well-equipped new car, for used-car money.

The 2013 Toyota Yaris holds true to its promise as a maneuverable, economical car for city commuting--with a cheerful, well-designed interior--but highway refinement and weak performance are major drawbacks.
