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.

Don't judge this book by its cover; the 2014 Honda Pilot may look tough on the outside, but it's more of a family hauler than an off-roader.

Instead, it competes with cars like the Toyota Highlander, which has a smooth, gentle ride, but isn't nearly as engaging on the road.

The Ford Flex is one of our top picks–it has an upscale, comfortable interior and a legitimately enjoyable driving experience with the turbocharged V-6.

The Ford Explorer is another comfortable option that looks tougher than it actually is–but it has more available technology inside than the Pilot.

The Chevrolet Traverse is larger even than the Flex, with a tall, SUV-like seating position and a well-appointed interior.

The Kia Sorento is a value leader in this category, but it feels a little smaller than the Pilot, due to its curvaceous body.
