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 boxy Patriot lands right between small, quirky tall crossover-hatchback models like the Kia Soul, Nissan Cube, Nissan Juke, or Scion xB, and more practical models like the Escape and Forester.

Among those, it’s one of the few to have a true off-road package, with shielding and upgrades like the Jeep.

The Ford Escape has received a radical makeover for this year, however, and it's now far more sophisticated.

The Subaru Forester is also due for a redesign, and is expected to make gains in refinement and interior space.

The Nissan Cube is something of a design oddity, taking the boxy, refrigerator look to a stylish extreme—and sacrificing some functionality in the process—while the Scion xB looks like it would offer quite a bit of space and versatility and it ends up surprisingly cramped.

For those looking at smaller models, there’s also the Kia Soul, which drives like a small car but has no off-road ability.

The 2014 Scion xB might not be as trendy -- or sensible -- as it tries to be, but it fits a lot of cabin space into a compact footprint.
