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.

With its great road manners and tight rear quarters, the Infiniti EX35 is a distinctive choice in the luxury crossover class.

It's most like the Acura RDX, which is also small behind the driver's seat; we prefer the EX35's interior to the Acura's, which lacks a rich, warm feel, though we love the RDX's whizzy turbo four.

The Audi Q5 is quite luxurious and handsome, but can ride harshly and gets quite expensive.

Volvo's XC60 has lots of safety technology and a sleek interior, with great cargo space, but it's not as engaging to drive as the EX35.

For about the same money, you could buy something much larger and much less sporty--something like the Lincoln MKX, a Top Safety Pick with advanced voice and touchscreen controls.
