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.

There's no third-row seat in the 2011 Ford Edge, while many other vehicles its size have one available.

The recently redesigned Chevrolet Equinox is another five-passenger crossover well worth considering; its base 182-horsepower four-cylinder engine is adequate and very fuel-efficient, and the Equinox, while not feeling quite as upscale inside as the new Edge, is impressive for small families.

The Toyota Highlander is a bit larger inside and offers three rows of seating, along with four-cylinder or V-6 engines, but it's much more conservative in look and feel.

Those who like attractive, sporty-feeling interiors will want to consider the five-passenger Nissan Murano, while those who want a little more utility—in the way of standard all-wheel drive—should take a look at the Subaru Tribeca.

Both the Tribeca and Murano only come with larger, less fuel-efficient six-cylinder engines.

That's also the case with the Mazda CX-9; crisp handling and a sportier driving feel are what sets the Mazda apart.

Provided you don't need a third-row seat, the 2011 Ford Edge is at last, at the leading edge of mid-size crossovers, with one of the best driver interfaces in the business.

The 2011 Mazda CX-9 can carry seven in comfort, but it loves curves more than almost any other roomy crossover.

With the 2011 Subaru Tribeca, first-class safety credentials and excellent all-weather handling ensure your precious ones are looked after, but if you need more than five seats, we suggest going with a bigger vehicle.

The very family-friendly Toyota Highlander and Highlander Hybrid impress us with their space and versatility, but show no sign of enthusiasm.
