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.

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 Chevrolet HHR takes the same formula and gives it somewhat crisper styling—though it's surprisingly (and woefully) tight on interior space.

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 2011 Kia Soul is fashion-forward and fun-to-drive—and unlike most of its urban-wagon rivals, it's just as practical as it looks.

A big-bodied extrovert, the 2011 MINI Cooper Clubman's the most desirable MINI for anyone beyond their single stage of life.
