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.

In the years since the Jeep Compass was first introduced, it's gone from an alternative to somewhat larger, more family-oriented compact crossovers to part of a growing class of smaller crossover models.

The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is one of them; it's road-oriented and has a somewhat better-designed interior, although it suffers from some of the same refinement issues.

The Nissan Juke is a lot of fun to drive, but somehow its interior space doesn't amount to much; it also has a harsh ride.

The Subaru XV Crosstrek is an interesting new model this year and handles better and with more refinement than the Compass while offering nearly the off-road capability.

On the other hand, the Mini Countryman isn't much of an off-road machine, but some will love its more stylish and better-detailed look inside and out.

One other more mainstream alternative is the Hyundai Tucson, which is compact and easy to park like the Compass but more stylish and contemporary as well as more fuel-efficient.

The 2013 Jeep Compass is affordable and makes good practical sense—but its disappointing interior appointments and lack of refinement limit its appeal.

Rich in value and interesting styling cues, the 2013 Hyundai Tucson's a pint-sized crossover that completely avoids SUV cliches of size and looks.

The 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is space-efficient, comfortable, and very maneuverable, but its noisy interior and lack of refinement are limiting factors.

The 2013 Nissan Juke is road candy, from its zippy powertrain to its wacky looks--but tight space and low real-world gas mileage leave an aftertaste.

TCC Rating
The 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek aims to provide the kind of trail ability and space for gear that weekend adventurer types need; but it also looks like a great value for Snow Belt commuters and small families -- and an alternative to bulkier crossover utilities.

The biggest MINI, the Countryman adds crossover flexibility to the lineup without diluting the fun-to-drive factor too much.
