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.

TCC's Bottom Line The 2010 BMW X3 beats other luxury crossovers in handling and gutsy performance, but it's still less satisfying than BMW's own 3-Series wagon. The 2010 Land Rover LR2 has the hallmarks of SUV styling, with a much more street-friendly driving feel than other big Rover utes.
