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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

The Buick Enclave isn't so much a minivan replacement as a minivan alternative--chucking the image problems along with the sliding side doors, but carrying on with most of the interior space and family-friendly features.

In that way it's much like the other seven- and eight-passenger crossovers in the premium niche.

We like the Dodge Durango, which has a little more authentic off-road and towing capability, as well as available HEMI V-8 power.

The Acura MDX is a direct competitor, without the Buick's suave good looks but with a bulletproof reputation for durability and a vast, flexible interior.

The Audi Q7 offers a demure German take, with less interior space but tighter road manners and an available diesel model with good highway fuel economy.

Finally, there are Ford's twin offerings, the distinctly un-alike Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT.

The Flex is the boxiest crossover this side of Volvo, but one with trend-setting features when it was new, and to this day, to match its style; the MKT's a related, bodacious-looking crossover with polarizing looks and sky's-the-limit technology.

There's much to love about the 2014 Audi Q7 and few if any failings; it does everything a three-row crossover vehicle should do, with great elegance and sophistication—and skips the faux-rugged nonsense.

The 2014 Dodge Durango is a great family hauler, and a top-notch utility infielder when you need extra brawn—made better this year with some important upgrades.

Boring isn't in its vocabulary: the 2014 Ford Flex makes owning a family wagon a statement of style.

The provocative Lincoln MKT has undeniable charm--a fantastic cabin, great infotainment features, and paddle-shifted EcoBoost power--but you have to buy into the look.
