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 MINI Countryman's premium price might not reflect its diminutive size, a factor some alternatives don't have to deal with.

The BMW X1 is nearly as compact, but offers more powerful engines--as well as a very small back seat.

Range Rover's Evoque is a bit larger, too, and more expensive, but its design is less quirky and more beautiful, and its luxury is more luxurious.

The Volkswagen Tiguan and Acura RDX might be closer to natural rivalry with the Countryman, but neither offers the personality of the MINI, despite offering more space.
