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 2010 Suzuki Grand Vitara offers real off-road ability and is maneuverable in town, but there are few other reasons to choose it. Don’t let the 2010 Ford Escape’s boxy, old-school appearance turn you off; the Escape is a solid, fuel-efficient choice for city-dwelling families.
