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.

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 been redesigned for 2015 with a more refined ride and more features.

The Ford Fiesta is the fun-to-drive champion of the class, and it looks very refined and nicely detailed inside and out; on the downside, it's not nearly as space-efficient.

The Hyundai Accent impresses 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 is attractive inside and out from a design standpoint, it's not a standout in other respects.

The 2015 Nissan Versa sedan and Versa Note hatchback are as about as inexpensive and no-frills as new cars get today. Spacious interiors and and decent ride comfort are their strong points, and they're best matched up against slightly upmarket, late-model used cars.

The 2015 Chevrolet Sonic is comfortable, stylish, safe, and drives well, and almost completely blots out our memory of a much worse Chevy Aveo from the past.

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.

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 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.
