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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

The Acura MDX is one of our top-ranked large crossovers.

Contenders include the handsome Buick Enclave, with great safety and sex appeal, as well as a prettier interior with a piece or two of less-appealing plastic trim than the MDX.

The Volvo XC90 has three rows of seats, but seating anyone in the third row is an awkward exercise, fuel economy is relatively poor, and initial quality has been less than exemplary.

The new Lincoln MKT takes the fundamentals of the roomy, capable Ford Flex and wraps them in distinctive sheetmetal—and fits in a 355-horsepower turbocharged six-cylinder engine for class-leading power.

The 2011 Buick Enclave no longer feels fresh, but it's still one of the most luxurious, passenger-friendly, and uniquely American family crossover wagons.

A singular look, along with top-shelf turbo power and features, earns the 2011 Ford Flex our top score among utility vehicles.

The swinging style sets an audacious mood—and the 2011 Lincoln MKT backs it up with turbo V-6 thrust.

The 2010 Volvo XC90 has aged gracefully and now is more feature-packed than ever; however, its poor fuel economy tarnishes an otherwise superb vehicle.
