TCC Rating
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.

Though Hyundai benchmarked the Lexus RX 350 in designing the Veracruz, its real rivals are a little less ambitious.

The Toyota Highlander was redesigned last year, gaining a more fuel-efficient four-cylinder option; compared to the Veracruz, the Highlander has a more spacious interior and drives a bit better, though some might think the Toyota’s styling to be more anonymous.

The Ford Edge is another one worth looking at; there’s no denying that it breaks from the mold in styling; the Edge is only offered with a V-6 and doesn’t get a third-row seat.

The Honda Pilot has truly different styling that’s boxy and angular; the strategy translates to a roomy interior and a likable vehicle, if you can get past the garish grille.

Finally, those who want a friskier-feeling vehicle will want to take the Mazda CX-9 for a drive; this three-row vehicle drives like a smaller one, though its cabin doesn’t look or feel truly luxurious in a conservative sense.

The 2010 Hyundai Veracruz doesn’t stand as a common-sense bargain like some of the brand’s other vehicles, but it’s spacious and comfortable.

The 2009 Honda Pilot looks more SUV-like in its second edition, but it has the room of a minivan, along with some notable styling miscues and expensive choices to make from the options list.

If you don't require a third-row seat, the 2008 Ford Edge is a fashionable, satisfying alternative in the crowded pack of mid-size crossovers.

The 2008 Mazda CX-9 may be the best-driving full-size seven-passenger crossover out there. It is certainly one of the best looking and appointed.

Most Americans prefer mushy white bread, and the 2008 Toyota Highlander is a larger, high-quality "loaf" that will satisfy most every consumer.
