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 2015 Jeep Renegade is likely to sell well in the quickly-growing subcompact utility vehicle segment.

In personality, its closest competitor may be the slightly larger, hatchback-derived Subaru XV Crosstrek, a smash hit with standard AWD, rugged durability, and the ground clearance to handle light off-roading.

The highest-volume competitor is likely to be the new Chevy Trax, which is similarly upright and functional but doesn't have the Jeep cachet.

It shows how quickly the segment is growing that two other competitors--the Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3, both subcompact crossover utility vehicles--haven't quite hit the market yet, though they will by the middle of the year.

Both the Honda and Mazda are more stylish, and more likely to be used for city and suburban driving than the tough but refined little Jeep.

The style-over-function priority also applies to the MINI Cooper Countryman as well, despite its available AWD.

It's also notably pricier than the Jeep.
