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.

Thanks to the 2008 BMW X6, the 2008 Infiniti FX has another similarly styled pal in the sandbox.

These are both coupe-styled crossovers that have a penchant for performance.

Dollar per dollar, the Infiniti FX45 holds an edge over the new X6. More conventional but still high-performance utilities include Audi Q7 (with a third row of seats) and the Porsche Cayenne S.

What these crossovers give up in terms of coupe styling, they give back in interior room. The last potential competitor for the 2008 Infiniti FX--particularly the FX45--is the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8.

These two feature all-wheel drive, big-horsepower V-8s, fancy wheels, and suspensions tuned to rip the asphalt off freeway ramps.

The Cayenne isn’t as well-rounded of a package as some of its rivals, but the Porsche name has a lot of draw on its own.
