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.

There's nothing else quite like the xB today.

But the Nissan Cube and Kia Soul are probably closest.

The Soul is more like a tall-and-boxy version of a small hatchback, and it drives that way as well.

The Cube has some of the same flaws as the xB; it doesn't contain as much cargo space as you might expect, although its seating is very comfortable.

The sharp-handling MINI Cooper Clubman rivals the xB in size and accessories, but it costs thousands of dollars more.

The quirky Nissan Juke also ranks as an alternative to the xB, although it's markedly less practical and has more of a sporty tack.

The 2014 Scion xB might not be as trendy -- or sensible -- as it tries to be, but it fits a lot of cabin space into a compact footprint.

The 2014 Kia Soul doesn’t stray from its iconic profile, but it dons more sophistication inside and underneath—with fewer compromises and all in the name of city-friendly, tall-wagon goodness.

The 2014 Nissan Cube is a boxy fashion statement that puts an emphasis on style, but at the expense of some practicality.

TCC Rating
The 2014 Nissan Juke is part oddball, part exotic, and part awesomely different (although not all that practical) small car.
