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 2014 BMW X6 bends genres, in mostly successful ways; but whether you like it depends on what you're crossing over from. The 2013 Acura ZDX is beautiful and well-detailed, as well as quite fun to drive, but its odd utility-sport-coupe design mostly misses the mark on practicality.
