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 2013 Cadillac SRX now offers more technology than any of its competition.

Compared to the SRX, the styling of the Lexus is restrained—some would call it dull—but it has been updated for in-cabin technology.

Both the Volvo XC60 and Audi Q5 are slightly smaller than the SRX but offer more engaging driving dynamics.

The Volvo also offers the City Safety system, which might help avoid accidents in low-speed driving.

Mercedes-Benz updated the GLK for 2013 with new styling and and some off-road capabilities the SRX can't match.

The BMW X5 remains a rival, and while it's more satisfying and nuanced behind the wheel, the SRX is arguably a bit better in cabin appointments.

BMW's X3 could also be seen as an alternative, but its iDrive interface hasn't evolved to anything like GM's CUE, and the X3's interior seems cramped in comparison.

The 2013 Lexus RX is plush and premium, and it delivers on that luxury impression, but it's not the over-the-top lavish expression some might seek.

It looks more like an authentically rugged SUV, but the improved 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK has carlike road manners and now, better fuel economy with both its gas V-6 and its new turbodiesel four.

The 2013 Volvo XC60 carries on the tradition of Volvo wagons--even their top-of-the-class safety--only in a modern, fashion-conscious crossover.
