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 2010 Audi Q7, but the Cayenne's a closer competitor, though it doesn't offer a third-row seat.

It's less attractive than the Audi, too, but a brutal Turbo version has scalding acceleration.

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

BMW's X5 struggles with plain design and a taller, less roomy package, but also has a blazing M performance edition.

The new entry on this list is the massive, flamboyant Lincoln MKT.

A seven-seat crossover with some kitschy features-how about a refrigerator inside?-the MKT has acres of interior room, good handling, a distinctive look, and a turbocharged V-6 option that makes it a dark-horse challenger in this pack.
