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 seven 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.

Among them, the Nissan Juke is perhaps the sportiest, yet the least practical.

The MINI Countryman is also at the sporty side of this group; it offers a lot of interior space, although its ride can be harsh and it doesn’t offer much if any off-road ability.

The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, on the other hand, has a somewhat better-designed interior and a comfortable ride, although it suffers from some of the same refinement issues as the Compass.

The Subaru XV Crosstrek is a more carlike vehicle, but it’s surprisingly tough and fuel-efficient; the down side here too is refinement.

The Hyundai Tucson is compact and easy to park like the Compass, but more cohesive and stylish in design.

A better ride and improved handling should add to the appeal of the 2014 Hyundai Tucson, which carries forward with curvaceous sheetmetal and against-the-grain crossover styling.

The 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander looks sporty, maneuvers easily, and is very space-efficient. All that's missing is the refined interior that the exterior suggests.

The 2014 Nissan Juke is part oddball, part exotic, and part awesomely different (although not all that practical) small car.
