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 Tucson's already four years old, and some of its competitors have met the challenge of its daring styling and its robust list of standard equipment.

The newest is the Ford Escape, which completely ditches its old, trucklike shape for a svelte hatchback look and brings carlike handling to the party, too.

The Honda CR-V was new last year, and its evolutionary look and drivetrain aren't so captivating, but interior room is excellent.

The Nissan Rogue could pass for the Tucson's cousin, and is nicely finished but has a CVT that makes the least of its four-cylinder engine.

Toyota's RAV4 stretches the envelope with six-cylinder and seven-seat options.

The Kia Sportage, meanwhile, is the Tucson's corporate cousin.

Its sport-shoe styling and optional turbocharged engine set it apart from the Tucson, as does UVO, its Bluetooth-driven voice controller for phone and audio.

After eleven years, a change-up: the 2013 Ford Escape drops the faux-SUV pitch and reels off authentically athletic looks and performance.

The 2013 Honda CR-V hits all the right marks for cost-conscious families—with its interior layout and safety ratings both best-in-class—although it doesn't feel as sprightly as former CR-V models.

A rakish crossover with a 260-horsepower four on tap, the Kia Sportage reboots its image on a few levels all at once.

The 2013 Nissan Rogue may not have excitement in its corner, but its layout, features, and affordability make a lot of sense for smaller families.

The 2013 Toyota RAV4 excels at mass-market talents like gas mileage and interior room--but for turbocharged fun in a crossover, you'll have to look elsewhere.
