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 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 2011 Hyundai Veracruz is spacious and comfortable, though not as sporty or stylistically evolved as the newest competition.

The 2011 Chevrolet Traverse isn’t fun to drive, but it’s one of the best large crossover wagons for transporting the family comfortably and safely.

If you can get past the garish grille and overwrought look, the 2011 Honda Pilot is a fine family vehicle, with minivan-like interior space and decent performance.

The 2011 Mazda CX-9 can carry seven in comfort, but it loves curves more than almost any other roomy crossover.

The very family-friendly Toyota Highlander and Highlander Hybrid impress us with their space and versatility, but show no sign of enthusiasm.
