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.

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 Enclave sets out to replace the minivan in your driveway with something a little more luxurious, and lot less attached to a stigma.

There are several large crossovers in the category, too.

The Dodge Durango is a little more rugged and offers a HEMI V-8.

The Acura MDX doesn't look quite as suave, but competes most closely in side and price, and offers undeniable reliability.

The Audi Q7 offers a diesel engine and German sensibilities, but isn't quite as large inside.

Then, there's the Ford Flex and Lincoln MKT, both of which offer polarizing styling that you'll either love or you'll hate, but both offer more technology than the Buick, and more engaging drivetrains, too.

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.
