TCC Rating
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.

There isn't all that much the X2's size and price available in the U.S.--yet.

Its closest rival is probably the Range Rover Evoque, a model that's far more expensive and definitely aims further off paved roads; the Evoque is a little more overtly stylish, too, as opposed to the X1's familial style.

The Evoque is also offered in three-door and five-door body styles.

The MINI Countryman is a corporate cousin, built on an unrelated platform; but isn't much bigger than the X1.

Still it yields a little more interior space, though its styling is more gimmicky.

For something in the same pricing range but with far more luxury content, you might look at a mass-market vehicle like the Ford Escape.

It's in the same performance and size niche, has excellent handling--and for the X1's price, can be fitted with features like active park assist, MyFord Touch voice controls, leather seating, and a hands-free power tailgate.
