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.

The sporty SUV conundrum has a real solution set; a few utes have conquered the opposing notions of off-road competence and on-road mastery.

The Range Rover Sport might do both best, but it has some brutally powerful competition.

The BMW X6 offers a coupe-like profile and even more impressive on-road performance in X6 M form, but lacks the true off-road capability promised by the Range Rover Sport.

Mercedes-Benz's M Class also offers extreme performance with its AMG version, but takes both styling and luxury in a different direction from the toned-down Range Rover.

The Porsche Cayenne fields spectacular street performance with enough ruggedizing to enable some trailblazing, but it's a Porsche, first and foremost, which means grip and acceleration come first.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT elbows into this haute crowd with a HEMI roar, if not quite the brand reputation.

And finally, Land Rover's own Range Rover offers a more regal alternative to the Sport, though it's aimed primarily at luxuriant driving and incredible off-roading, a little less on hard-charging cornering.
