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 An impressive performer both on and off-road, the 2012 Land Rover Range Rover Sport has the broadest reach of any luxury SUV we know. The 2012 BMW X6 is no longer alone in the coupe-like SUV market, but it remains one of the best options, for its performance, luxury, utility, and style.
