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 Audi Q5 has more choice in drivetrains than any of its competition, but none of them are particularly lacking in their overall scores.

The Mercedes GLK has a new diesel option this year, and it's priced more reasonably than the Q5 TDI, though adding comparable features draws the prices closer.

BMW's X3 has excellent turbocharged engines and lots of interior space, while the Range Rover Evoque gets a new nine-speed automatic this year.

Volvo's XC60 has some standout safety technology and the most cargo room in the segment, while the Cadillac SRX has the CUE touchscreen interface and an excellent V-6 underhood.
