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 RX 350 is the bogie for Lincoln, but the RX isn’t that engaging to drive and can be tough to find in crowded mall parking lots.

The 2009 Lincoln MKX is more engaging to drive, but it can't match the level of refinement achieved by the RX 350.

Dynamically, the Acura MDX is a better-handling vehicle than the 2009 Lincoln MKX, as is the rear-wheel-drive Cadillac SRX.

If you put a high value on performance, the SRX and BMW X5 offer optional V-8 engines.

The 2009 Cadillac SRX enters its last year as a good-looking and functional crossover, but tight third-row seating and poor fuel efficiency remain as blemishes on an otherwise solid package.
