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.

Shoppers are still moving toward smaller SUVs, but sporty, luxurious ones like the 2010 Acura RDX are especially rising in popularity.

The BMW X3 was one of the first entries in the niche, but its substandard interior (at least initially) and rough ride keep TheCarConnection.com from recommending it.

Infiniti's EX35 is a blast to drive with none of the turbo lag, but its fuel economy is worse than that of the RDX.

Land Rover's LR2 feels plusher than the RDX, with the LR2 owning a bit of off-road edge.

VW's Tiguan also has a turbo four, but somehow it's a lot easier to live with.

The Mercedes-Benz GLK is another new entry in this group-it sizes up with the rest but manages to feel a bit more mature and refined; for now, it's only offered with a big V-6.

The Audi Q5 is another new entry set to come out late in the 2010 model year.

The 2010 Acura RDX keeps its energetic personality intact-along with its slightly nervous feel-and gets a more fuel-frugal front-drive edition that's worth considering on price and gas mileage.

The 2009 Audi Q5 sports the sleek lines of a sweet German sedan, a date-worthy cabin, and good, hefty, but gimmicky handling.

The 2009 Volkswagen Tiguan aims for the likes of the Honda CR-V and hits a little higher--in price and sophistication.

Because of the Infiniti EX35, 2008 could be year of the right-sized crossover. Many people are looking for SUV style without SUV size, and they should be particularly attracted to this offering.
