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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

With an even sportier driving feel, better crash-test scores, and good fuel economy—plus the best folding rear seat in the segment—the Honda Fit is the forerunner.

The Toyota Yaris, especially as a hatchback, is a stylish conveyance and now comes with standard electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes.

Then there’s the Hyundai Accent, which is closely related to the Rio four-door; the Accent also comes as a two-door hatchback, like the Yaris.

The Chevrolet Aveo is another rival, but it fails to hit the mark in so many ways and doesn’t offer an especially strong seat of features or a lower price than the rest.

The 2011 Kia Rio has a perky driving feel and roomy interior, though the lack of refinement, low safety scores, and dated styling limit its appeal.

The 2011 Chevrolet Aveo is vastly improved from first glance; we'll reserve final judgement until road-test cars are made available.

TCC Rating
The 2011 Honda Fit is like a mini-minivan in some respects, with an incredibly space-efficient design; yet it's peppy, frugal, and fun to drive.

TCC Rating
The 2011 Hyundai Accent, while a cheap and thoroughly adequate commuter car, lacks the sophistication and design flair seen in many other newer models its size.

The 2011 Toyota Yaris is a great city car for cost-conscious commuters, though those who expect a top-notch list of connectivity features will be disappointed.
