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 GMC Terrain shares much mechanically with the 2011 Chevrolet Equinox (and the Cadillac SRX), although the Terrain has bolder, more assertive styling.

It looks to be considerably more stylish than the Ford Escape, which has seen a series of minor updates in recent years but still feels rather outdated.

Shoppers might compare the Terrain, considering its passenger-friendly interior and economical four-cylinder powertrain, with compact crossover mainstays like the Honda CR-V or Toyota RAV4, or with the Volkswagen Tiguan.

The RAV4 is a bit larger compared to the others in this class and has an available third-row seat.

The 2011 GMC Terrain looks bold and edgy on the outside, but it’s a softy inside, with a comfortable, refined cabin and excellent fuel economy.

If you don’t need a third row, the 2011 Chevrolet Equinox is just right for small families; it’s refined, secure, and versatile, and gets very impressive fuel economy in four-cylinder form.

The boxy, old-school appearance might turn you off, but the 2011 Ford Escape still delivers solid crossover and SUV bona fides.

The 2011 Honda CR-V is homely, as well as unexciting to drive; yet it's a great minivan alternative on many counts—appealing to practical shoppers with a roomy, versatile interior and top safety ratings.

Don't let appearances mislead; the 2011 Toyota RAV4 is a modern, practical crossover choice and great for frugal families.

The 2011 Volkswagen Tiguan feels refined and sophisticated, but it's not especially rewarding to drive.
