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.

You might compare the LR2 to the Acura RDX, Infiniti EX35, and even the Lexus RX, but they have less off-roading in mind.

More close competitors include three German utes and a Swedish cousin.

The Audi Q5 is a leader in the class with its refined look and interior, but its optional electronic steering and suspension need work.

The BMW X3 has been refined with a much better ride and steering, but it's missing the off-road cachet of the LR2.

The Benz GLK echoes the Land Rover's angularity but deletes an off-road package offered to European buyers.

Lastly, there's the car that shares a lot of its engineering with the LR2: the Volvo XC60.

With a common powertrain and safety system, the Volvo XC60 looks softer, rides a bit more sweetly, has a wonderful interior with plush seats, and comes with a City Safety feature that applies brakes if the driver is distracted.

The 2009 Audi Q5 sports the sleek lines of a sweet German sedan, a date-worthy cabin, and good, hefty, but gimmicky handling.
