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 compact sedan class includes some top-drawer competition.

The class leader is the Honda Civic; in sedan form, it has very modern styling with a unique two-level dash that’s controversial, but its handling is good, as is fuel economy.

A hybrid version is available.

The Mazda3 has the best handling in the class, but it’s a little tight on rear-seat room.

The Ford Focus has an ungainly new style, but fuel economy is good and the 2008 version has a wealth of new features, including Ford’s SYNC entertainment controller.
