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.

The Nissan Sentra is on the larger side of the compact car segment, making the Chevrolet Cruze its closest competitor.

The Cruze feels refined, comfortable and refined.

The Hyundai Elantra and Ford Focus stand out due to their stylish designs, but the Elantra is more of a value leader, while the Focus manages to be one of the sportiest models in this segment.

The Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic are the Sentra's more traditional competitors.

The Corolla is all-new for 2014, brought back from the retirement home to new levels of quality and feature technology, while the Civic has improved over its 2012 model year gone awry, with better materials and a better look.

Even without considering the top-performance ST, the 2014 Ford Focus is one of the best-driving small cars on the market--with the impression of being an accessible premium car, not a spruced-up econobox.
