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.

The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class has as much seating and off-road ability as the X5, and to some eyes, it's more attractive than the BMW.

The Cadillac Escalade brings more glitz than any of these SUVs; also, its smooth powertrain is available in two-mode hybrid form.

The Porsche Cayenne seats just five and is even less inspiring to look at than the X5, though it too handles well.

The Lexus GX 470 offers a bit smaller overall size but most of the features of this class.

The Land Rover Range Rover is a stylish option, though that premium styling comes with a premium price.

The 2010 BMW X5 offers impressive handling and features, but lacks the styling and interior that makes competitors pop, while the X5 M offers nearly sports car levels of performance with all the utility of a standard X5.

The 2010 Cadillac Escalade is big, brawny, and very thirsty; yet with segment-leading performance and unrivaled style, the Escalade is hard to beat.

The 2010 Land Rover Range Rover is a bit pricey, but it delivers a lot of value, too.

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class' nimble ride and elegant cabin charm the mud right off a Range Rover.

Despite some issues with practicality, the 2010 Porsche Cayenne is a luxurious and supremely capable performer.

A cramped rear seat and sluggish performance tarnish the otherwise rugged-lux credentials of the 2009 Lexus GX 470.
