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's truly no direct rival to the 2013 Honda Accord Crosstour.

One of the closest alternatives would be the Toyota Venza, although the Venza is definitely more practical, and more of a wagon and a car than the Crosstour.

The Subaru Outback is a more rugged alternative, with a far more spacious and versatile interior.

Meanwhile, two wagons--the Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen and Acura TSX--both offer more interior space and a sporty driving experience, with good gas mileage.

The Jetta Sportwagen in particular stands out due to its available TDI clean-diesel engine.

Purely in form, the BMW X6 is, oddly enough, the closest competitor to the Crosstour--although it suffers from many of the same criticisms in usability and sensibility.

The 2013 Honda Crosstour has a cloudy narrative: it wants to be a roomy alternative to a best-selling sedan, but doesn't net much more room for its less gainly look.

For nearly all compact-sedan shoppers except serious enthusiasts or green-car fanatics, the 2013 Acura TSX strikes an agreeable compromise between sport-sedan attitude and premium-car practicality.

The 2013 BMW X6 finally has some serious competition in the coupe/SUV segment, but remains one of the most impressive sport crossovers around.

The 2013 Subaru Outback is practical above all: it's capable in all kinds of conditions, and has great interior space and standard all-wheel drive.

The Toyota Venza gets substantial improvements in entertainment and connectivity for 2013; otherwise it remains a comfortable, practical, and somewhat stylish pick for those who don't need a rugged SUV.
