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.

The 2010 Chevrolet Equinox is the same basic vehicle, priced about the same and available with all of the same equipment but with a very different look.

If the Terrain sounds like the right vehicle for you, but just doesn't fit your image, try the Equinox.

The Toyota RAV-4 and Honda CR-V beat out the Terrain in cargo room, but the Terrain's long options list and good fuel economy make it a worthy alternative.

The slightly smaller Nissan Rogue and Ford Escape compete well on price, but the Terrain could beat them on features and size.

Despite similarities to the Chevy Equinox, the 2010 GMC Terrain stands on its own as a boldly styled, efficient, and high-featured small/mid-size crossover.

The 2010 Chevrolet Equinox is all about evolution—and the most striking changes are almost invisible, except at the gas pump.

Don’t let the 2010 Ford Escape’s boxy, old-school appearance turn you off; the Escape is a solid, fuel-efficient choice for city-dwelling families.

The 2010 Nissan Rogue doesn’t wow in any respect, but provided you don’t expect driving excitement its solid set of features, safety, and decent performance won’t let you down.

Though it might wear a spare tire on its tail like the hard-core SUVs of yore, don't let that throw you off. The 2010 Toyota RAV4 is actually a practical, fuel-efficient choice for frugal families on the go.
