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.

A showboat in many ways, the 2012 Lincoln MKT has some other striking competitors, and some more sedate.

The Acura MDX is among the snooziest of the kind, but its big eight-passenger interior and anonymous looks have glints of personality, though we don't care for the beavertooth grille or its overly light, quick steering.

The Audi Q7 is all about being tasteful, but it's quite expensive the way you'd really want to own it (as a diesel).

Buick's Enclave has polite, pretty curves, but it's missing some of the tech features and the turbocharger from the big Lincoln.

Lastly, there's the Ford Flex, the MKT's mechanical twin and its polar opposite.

All square corners and MINI and Range Rover references, the Flex is fabulous in its own way, though only a bit less controversial than the MKT.

EcoBoost thrust and limo-like space may attract you more to the 2012 Lincoln MKT than its polarizing shape, but we're among its fans.

The 2012 Acura MDX is not just comfortable and family-friendly; it's one of the most enjoyable three-row crossovers to drive.

The 2012 Audi Q7 has what upscale suburban families want: a lavish interior, a cabin full of premium features, and performance and ride that are very carlike--plus serious towing ability if and when you need it.
