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.

Safety and interior space are probably the greatest concerns if you're considering the Chevy Traverse.

That allowed, you should probably take a look at both the Ford Flex and Ford Explorer.

Both models seat seven, but the Flex's lower ride height and funky styling are an urban twist on the same mechanicals that underpin the more SUV-like Explorer.

The Toyota Highlander is a good, albeit unexciting pick.

It rides very smoothly and is available in hybrid form.

A very soft ride and wallowy handling add up to a road character that won't appeal to driving enthusiasts, though.

We haven't loved the Honda Pilot since its last 2010 redesign, but a substantially changed 2014 model is on the way.

Otherwise, the new Dodge Durango is an excellent vehicle that's actually somewhat related to the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Its tight construction and supple ride quality make it very appealing, although it's not quite as space-efficient and the styling doesn't quite hit the mark.
