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 young buyers who used to seek out the Scion xB may never even have considered the two small wagons with retro styling, but they make a sensible comparison.

The Chrysler PT Cruiser has been virtually unchanged for a decade, and while it is sorely outdated, it still appeals to some.

The Chevrolet HHR takes the same formula and gives it somewhat crisper styling.

While it's slightly smaller, the new Kia Soul offers angular but smart styling, lots of interior space, and a high level of standard equipment, despite being far from the quickest box on the block.

The MINI Cooper Clubman is considerably pricier than the other three, and its door layout-one on the driver's side, two on the passenger side, and "church doors" in the rear-may put off some buyers.

But its on-the-road character is far sportier than any of the rest, for those who enjoy twisty routes.

The 2009 Chevrolet HHR is a great urban runabout for small-business owners with frequent cargo hauls.

The 2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser convertible gets the axe midway through 2008, so if you want one, act quickly, but the wagon is here if you need flexible utility with retro flair.

The 2008 MINI Cooper S Clubman--extroverted styling in a slightly bigger package with more power makes for a fun car that is hard not to look at with a broad smile.
