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.

Although the former Cherokee, and the Liberty, competed against more traditional SUVs, the new 2014 Cherokee takes on the roomier compact crossovers, like the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Hyundai Santa Fe, and Subaru Forester.

The CR-V is one of the most comfort-oriented, utility-minded offerings, and it’s a good pick for those who don’t quite want or need a minivan.

The latest RAV4 gets a more modern look, as well as a somewhat smarter layout, but it doesn’t necessarily drive better than the previous version.

The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport is economical and has seating for five, and has an available economical yet strong turbocharged engine, although there’s a three-row Santa Fe available.

Subaru’s Forester is roomy and comfortable yet surprisingly able on the trail; that and good ground clearance make it a strong pick for those in very snowy climates.

The Ford Escape takes a different approach altogether, with sportier styling and an interior that sacrifices some space, as well as zippy handling and an all-four-cylinder engine lineup.

The 2014 Jeep Cherokee plants a foot in both the crossover and SUV world--and only flubs the styling.

The 2014 Honda CR-V isn't exactly sprightly, but it nails efficiency on a few levels and finally brings more features to the family-wagon fight.

The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe is a little schizophrenic, but we dig both of its personalities. Those with larger families will want to look at the V-6 Santa Fe, while smaller families will enjoy the turbo-powered Santa Fe Sport.

The sharp-looking 2014 Subaru Forester gets a lot more comfortable inside, and offers some useful driving aids and safety electronics.

The 2014 Toyota RAV4 is sensible and spacious; but if driving fun is a priority, you can do better.
