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 Hyundai Accent used to be even cheaper than the Versa—and the most affordable model in the U.S.—but Hyundai knocked out those cheapest trims from the lineup and the Versa is the current cheap skate of the market.

With the lineup changes, the Accent now costs several thousand more than the Versa, but it does impress as a little more upscale—mainly because its switchgear and trims are a step above.

The Chevrolet Sonic is far more refined, with a better ride than the Versa plus better interior comfort and top-notch safety; it feels like a significantly more expensive car, even though it doesn't cost all that much more.

While the latest Toyota Yaris was redesigned last year and is attractive inside and out from a design standpoint, it's not a standout in other respects.

Both the Honda Fit and Ford Fiesta offer a lot more driving enjoyment in an otherwise comparable package.

Against the Note, the Fit stands out especially for its very low cargo floor and a seat-folding arrangement that's better than all others in this class.

It's also worth noting that an all-new Honda Fit is expected next spring.

As one of the lowest-priced new cars, the 2014 Nissan Versa and Versa Note are best matched up against a slightly upmarket late-model used car; while it's not sporty, it is roomy, with good packaging and lots of available technology.

The 2015 Honda Fit might not up the ante in sportiness, but it offers up exactly what urban small-car shoppers want in safety and convenience features—and it's still as good as some utility vehicles or vans with its wondrous, unmatched Magic Seat setup.

The 2014 Chevrolet Sonic is light-years ahead of its Aveo predecessor, which Chevy hopes you'll forget. It's stylish, comfortable, drives nicely, and has excellent safety ratings and infotainment features.

Affordable small cars don't need to be bland, whether in appearance or from behind the wheel. And the 2014 Ford Fiesta is proof of that.

The 2014 Hyundai Accent isn't exciting to drive, but it's one of the most comfortable, well-equipped cars its size--and still a great value.

The 2014 Toyota Yaris is built for city commuting, but on highways it reveals some major weak spots.
