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.

The Kia Sorento is all about choice: it offers five seats or seven seats, four or six cylinders, front-drive or all-wheel drive.

That means it competes with many crossovers, most directly the Dodge Journey, a capable crossover with similar specs and even better seating and infotainment options, though tighter interior space.

The new RAV4 is missing the former third-row seat as an option, and it's now only a four-cylinder machine.

Honda's latest CR-V has great flexibility and new infotainment features, but styling's still less a feature than a function.

In a larger set of vehicles--with fewer seats--we like the 32-mpg version of the Chevy Equinox and its sliding second-row seat, and the higher-mileage editions of the Ford Edge, one with a turbo four that approaches the Sorento's highway mileage numbers.

The 2013 Chevrolet Equinox is a good, affordable choice for cost-conscious families, but it doesn't skimp on comfort, safety, or the latest connectivity features.

The 2013 Dodge Journey is a clever tweener, with three rows of seats if you need, and manageable size all the time--at a very reasonable base price.

The 2013 Ford Edge cuts through the crossover clutter with a 30-mpg turbo model, MyFord Touch's step-ahead connectivity, and exceptional interior room.

TCC Rating
The 2013 Honda CR-V hits all the right marks for cost-conscious families—with its interior layout and safety ratings both best-in-class—although it doesn't feel as sprightly as former CR-V models.

TCC Rating
The 2013 Toyota RAV4 excels at mass-market talents like gas mileage and interior room--but for turbocharged fun in a crossover, you'll have to look elsewhere.
