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 Honda CR-V is one of the safest, most refined crossovers in the compact to mid-size segment, but it's not too exciting.

It's a polar opposite of the Ford Escape, new for 2013 with a rakish roofline and a powertrain lineup including turbocharged fours, not to mention excellent handling.

On the other hand, the Escape isn't as boxy and practical in that way as the previous version was.

The Chevrolet Equinox has an excellent base powertrain with high fuel economy; it's also refined and quiet, with a clever sliding second-row seat, but it's not quite as space-efficient or versatile as the Honda.

Both the Hyundai Tucson and Kia Sportage are a bit smaller than the CR-V but not all that much more fuel-efficient; they're not nearly as spacious inside, either, but they drive with more small-car verve.

Finally, the new Toyota RAV4 has become more like the CR-V with its recent redesign.

It's more efficient, not much more exciting, and now it's four-cylinder only.

The 2014 Honda CR-V isn't exactly sprightly, but it nails efficiency on a few levels and finally brings more features to the family-wagon fight.

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.

With authentically athletic looks and performance balancing out good passenger space, cargo versatility, and loads of high-tech features, the 2014 Ford Escape is attractive to a wide range of buyers.

A better ride and improved handling should add to the appeal of the 2014 Hyundai Tucson, which carries forward with curvaceous sheetmetal and against-the-grain crossover styling.

TCC Rating
With up to 260 horsepower on tap and styling that's suitably athletic, the 2014 Kia Sportage shows that practical compact crossover wagons don't need to be so stodgy.

TCC Rating
The 2014 Toyota RAV4 is sensible and spacious; but if driving fun is a priority, you can do better.
