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.

The VW Group builds three SUVs that compete directly with the Land Rover LR4.

Closest is the Audi Q7, which is a polar opposite of the LR4 with its sleek aero silhouette, its low stance, its more accessible third-row seat, and its modern perspective on off-road performance.

The Volkswagen Touareg is similar, though only a five-seater, while the Porsche Cayenne is a bit lighter and more road-oriented.

Two of those vehicles offer fuel-conscious diesels.

The five-passenger Mercedes M-Class offers another intriguing alternative for those who are conscious about gas-guzzling: the diesel ML320 CDI, which gets 18 mpg city, 24 mpg highway.

The BMW X5 has a slightly higher price tag but also offers a third-row seat and, this year, adds a high-performance M version.

Lastly, the Lexus GX 470 is new for 2010, and in an interesting turn of events, dials back its styling to a more straight-edged era, keeping its tall, narrow body and its five- or seven-passenger capability.
