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.

Our favorite vehicle in this class remains the Honda Fit, for many reasons.

The Fit’s a little more fun to drive, handles better, and feels more substantial on the road.

And it has the best layout of all the subcompacts, with a trick Magic Seat arrangement that allows a minivan-like cargo area when needed—and enough space for adults in the back seat.

The Chevrolet Aveo is the other pick of the bunch for ride quality, but the Aveo is in its last year and is thoroughly unimpressive in every other way.

Toyota’s Yaris has the best fuel economy, at up to 36 mpg highway, but it doesn’t feel as roomy or refined as other offerings.

The xD is a little sportier, but it’s an odd package and comes up lacking in interior space, while the new Fiesta feels sporty but isn’t all that roomy, especially compared to the Versa.

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.

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.

The 2011 Scion xD offers an impressive list of features and sporty accessories, but it's not as much fun to drive as its image suggests.
