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 2010 MINI Cooper Clubman's retro styling and wagon body carve a unique automotive niche.

The Volkswagen GTI four-door comes close to the MINI's mission: It's upright, with even better passenger and cargo room and access, but only a whiff of the Clubman's styling panache.

The A3 is related to the GTI and shares its good driving dynamics, but sports an even higher price tag than the GTI, along with a new diesel engine option.

The Mazdaspeed3 is the value champion here, even when laden with luxury features.

It's also distinctively styled and well crafted, with an enviable reputation for build quality and reliability that all these other machines simply can't match.

The 2009 Audi A3 is more than a spruced-up VW hatchback, thanks to the fabulous interior, S-tronic transmission, and V-6 bark.

The 2009 Volkswagen GTI is the most conservative-looking of sporty hatches—and a bit pricey for a dressed-up Rabbit—but it redeems itself with the driving experience.
