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 2015 Equinox offers Chevrolet a solid, versatile entry to the family crossover segment.

By comparison, the Ford Escape offers more technology and a more engaging engine lineup, but it's not as comfortable or quiet as the Equinox.

The Subaru Forester finally presents a viable alternative with excellent all-wheel-drive driving dynamics, as well as a considerably better interior than past models.

The Honda CR-V always has reliability on its side, and also offers ample versatility.

The Hyundai Tucson may be slightly smaller, but offers better fuel economy than the Equinox.

And, the GMC Terrain costs slightly more than its platform-mate, but some may prefer its truck-like styling over that of the Equinox.
