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.

BMW's X5 has a third-row seat and a V-8 version.

The military-spec Mercedes-Benz G-Class is just as upright and can be nearly as plush.

The Lexus LX 570 is essentially a trimmed-out Toyota Land Cruiser, and off-road performance is equal, if not superior, to that of the Range Rover—but the LX 570 is a bit more conservative and lacks the personality of the other vehicles.

The Cadillac Escalade is more of an on-road vehicle, but it's flashier in an urban (or urbane) way.

However, none of the vehicles listed quite match the Range Rover’s savoir faire.

The 2008 Lexus LX 570 comes loaded with worthwhile technology, but it's not as distinctive as a Range Rover or an Escalade.

The 2008 Mercedes-Benz G-Class climbs rocks the old-fashioned way, with the looks to match.
