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 most appealing vehicle in this crowd, from a practicality perspective, is the Honda Fit; although it's quite a bit more expensive, the Fit is safer, more expansive inside—thanks to the wonderful Magic Seat design—and more fun to drive.

For those more concerned about style and features, the Ford Fiesta is a good pick; while the Fiesta doesn't quite have the space or comfort of the Fit, it also has a sporty driving feel and excellent interior appointments, including available heated seats and SYNC voice-activated Bluetooth connectivity.

Otherwise, the Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio are probably the most direct competitors to the Toyota Yaris.

The Chevrolet Aveo, made in South Korea by GM Daewoo, is another model worth looking at, but it doesn't perform as well as these other models in most respects.

Both the Kia Rio and Hyundai Accent are due to be replaced this next year.

The 2011 Honda Fit is like a mini-minivan in some respects, with an incredibly space-efficient design; yet it's peppy, frugal, and fun to drive.

The 2011 Hyundai Accent, while a cheap and thoroughly adequate commuter car, lacks the sophistication and design flair seen in many other newer models its size.

The 2011 Kia Rio has a perky driving feel and roomy interior, though the lack of refinement, low safety scores, and dated styling limit its appeal.
