TCC Rating
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 are many three-row crossover models with seating space close to that of the Flex, but none of them have its crowd-pleasing interior, not its quirky head-turning exterior.

The Buick Enclave has its own curvaceous charm, but its V-6 is throatier and even with improvements for 2013 its cabin doesn't look quite as luxurious as that of the Ford.

The Honda Pilot is a strong entry, but all the tacky, grainy plastic on the dash of the latest version make it less desirable.

The Chrysler Town & Country is a practical pick that can be equipped with as many features at a lower price.

The Range Rover Sport is a model that has something close to the Flex's exterior style, yet it costs more and isn't nearly as practical.

The Lincoln MKT is closely related to the Flex but lacks the Ford's swagger from the outside.

With an unmistakable design, strong performance, and a roomy, comfortable interior, the 2013 Ford Flex proves that three-row crossovers don't have to be boring.

The Buick Enclave remains one of the most distinctive and comfortable large crossovers, and a substantially upgraded interior keeps it contemporary for 2013.

The 2013 Chrysler Town & Country is tops in safety, flexibility, and features--the things that matter in minivans--though it's pricey.

The 2013 Honda Pilot looks tough and truck-like from the outside, yet inside it's one of the better family haulers.

TCC Rating
The most broadly talented luxury SUV of its kind, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport is plush, quick, rugged, and authentic--as well as pricey, thirsty, and not especially spacious.

TCC Rating
The shape of the 2013 Lincoln MKT might be polarizing, but there's undeniable charm in its luxurious cabin, its feature set and, surprisingly, its (EcoBoost) driving experience.
