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.

TCC's Bottom Line The 2014 Jeep Cherokee plants a foot in both the crossover and SUV world--and only flubs the styling. The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe is a little schizophrenic, but we dig both of its personalities. Those with larger families will want to look at the V-6 Santa Fe, while smaller families will enjoy the turbo-powered Santa Fe Sport.
