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 Mitsubishi Mirage is one the smallest, most affordable cars sold in the U.S., but it's also more spacious than a traditional minicar.

It's much larger than the Smart ForTwo or Scion iQ, and less expensive than either.

The Toyota Yaris and Ford Fiesta are larger, but offer considerably worse fuel economy.

The Chevy Spark is the Mirage's closest competitor, but it's more attractive and better built, with more available technology.

The Spark should be the car that satisfies most shoppers, though the Mirage is hard to beat when it comes to price and fuel economy.

The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage smaller than a subcompact and larger than a minicar, but offers five-door hatchback versatility on the cheap–and the best fuel economy you'll find in a non-hybrid car. That comes at a price in performance, though.

The 2015 Chevrolet Spark can actually seat four adults and manage frugal fuel economy; it's best of the minicars.

The 2015 Fiesta lineup is proof that small cars don't have to be feature free, and you can even have a bit of fun while saving fuel.

TCC Rating
The 2015 Toyota Yaris gets an eye-catching new face, spruced-up interior trims, and a somewhat quieter interior, but it lags behind the current crop of U.S.-market subcompacts in many ways.

TCC Rating
The 2015 Scion iQ is made for city dwellers who have trouble finding parking; others will see it as a fashion accessory or a vehicular oddity.
