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.

Both the Volkswagen Touareg and Porsche Cayenne are related to the 2009 Audi Q7, but neither offers a third-row seat—nor are they as sleek and refined as the Audi ute.

Both the Touareg and Cayenne do claim off-road ability, however, if making them more attractive is a priority.

The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class SUV has crisp lines and a luxurious, roomy interior.

BMW's X5 is a little less handsome than the Audi Q7, but it sports equivalent performance and features.

The Infiniti FX35 and FX50 are other alternatives to the Q7; they offer an equally stylish—if not more aggressive—appearance, with even sharper handling and a rather firm ride.

But the FX’s curvier shape means that it sacrifices interior space in the name of fashion.

The 2008 Volkswagen Touareg has more toughness than most mid-size SUVs for heavy-duty towing and off-road needs yet on-the-road comfort doesn’t suffer.
