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.

The Lexus GX 460 is a one of a dying breed, in that it's a mid-sized luxury SUV that sits on a truck-based platform.

Thanks to its sophisticated suspension, it offers excellent driving dynamics both on and off-road.

The Mercedes-Benz GL and Audi Q7 both have the Lexus beat in on-road driving, but neither can go quite as hard when it comes to leaving the pavement.

However, both offer an optional diesel engine, giving them an edge in terms of fuel economy and range.

The VW Touareg doesn't come with a third row, but it goes off-road with more grace than its German counterparts.

There's also the Jeep Grand Cherokee–also missing a third row–but it offers wonderful on-road dynamics, and strong competencies when it comes to off-roading.
