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 Buick Enclave competes with some other luxury-liner crossovers, domestics in particular.

The Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT come naturally to mind, with head-turning looks and even more infotainment options than the Enclave, with a little better use of their interior space and noticeably better interior finishes.

The Volvo XC90's related to those Ford vehicles, but it's an aging design with less available space and relatively low fuel economy--and this year, without its former V-8 option.

The Lexus RX 350 only seats five, but it's the crossover that started it all, and still deserves a look if the third-row seat is something you'd give up for good passenger space and competent if unexciting performance.

EcoBoost thrust and limo-like space may attract you more to the 2012 Lincoln MKT than its polarizing shape, but we're among its fans.
