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 Beetle doesn't sit comfortably in any one genre, spanning coupe, hatchback, and convertible competition with its unique form.

The MINI Cooper is its closest natural competition.

The MINI is more compact and more fun to drive, and it offers a similar image factor, but at a much higher price.

Ford's Mustang is another classic-meets-modern image car, but it's considerably quicker and sportier in most guises, and even competitive on gas mileage in V-6 guise.

The Nissan Juke offers its own special look, but ride quality and gas mileage aren't the best.

The Audi TT is a notch above the Beetle in performance and price, but that sophistication might draw in buyers looking for a more grown-up ride.

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

The 2014 MINI Cooper is a fun, smart, and practical way to get around, without giving up its sporty, quirky side.
