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 Ford Edge is a half-size larger than compact crossovers like the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V, and it has a more refined ride than those models.

Yet with its 30-mpg highway rating in EcoBoost form, it's a viable alternative to those models.

With five seats and available all-wheel drive, it draws from a wide range of models.

The Chevy Equinox has a four-cylinder model with a 32-mpg highway rating; it's nciely styled and trimmed, with good packaging that includes a sliding second-row seat.

The Nissan Murano and Toyota Venza have comparable interior appointments and are both stylish entries like the Edge.

The latest Explorer has seven seats, but the third row's a little smaller than some; it has some of the same powertrains as the Edge but adds a turbocharged V-6 this year in a Sport model that's an SHO in all but name.

With an EPA-estimated 33 mpg highway, the Ford Escape is a little smaller than the Edge but a stylish, tech-loaded alternative for those who don't need as much space.

The 2014 Chevrolet Equinox is every bit as solid, spacious, and well-equipped as cost-conscious families could expect -- and far more quiet and refined than many other models without a luxury badge.

The 2014 Nissan Murano is stylish and refined, but lacks some of the space and efficiency found in competitors.

If you don't need a rugged SUV, the 2014 Toyota Venza is a practical, even stylish alternative with some strong wagon and hatchback leanings.
