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 Toyota Yaris-the most fuel-efficient small hatchback, with ratings of 29 mpg city, 36 mpg highway-feels downright substantial next to the 2010 Smart ForTwo, offering a real backseat and the ability to do distance driving without terrifying driver and passenger.

The pricier but supremely flexible Honda Fit offers a breathtaking array of interior setups that let owners haul any mix of four people and their gear.

If it's the lowest cost you're seeking, the four-seat, five-door Nissan Versa offers a model that's more than $2,000 cheaper than the ForTwo.

Further along the style axis, the sprightly MINI Cooper is far more fun to drive at speed and just as good on gas, at 28 mpg city, 37 mpg highway.

Finally, hybrids like the new Toyota Prius and even the Honda Civic Hybrid compact sedan offer full seating for four or five and far better fuel economy, albeit at a higher price.

Look beyond the appearance of the 2010 Honda Fit, which admittedly won’t quicken pulses. Honda nails the rest with the peppy, spacious, and frugal Fit.

The 2010 Nissan Versa is one of the best-value cars available on the market. Just remember that at its cheapest, you won’t be getting too much in the way of features.
