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's ho-hum driving demeanor and plain-Jane appearance mean it doesn't attract eyes the way the MKX does.

The 2010 Lincoln MKX is more engaging on the road, but it comes up short when trying to match the refinement of the RX 350.

In terms of performance, the Acura MDX is a better-handling vehicle than the 2010 Lincoln MKX, as is the all-new all-wheel-drive Cadillac SRX.

If you put a high value on performance, the BMW X5 offers an optional V-8 engine, while the SRX offers a turbocharged model.

TCC Rating
The 2011 BMW X5 offers impressive handling and features, but lacks the styling and interior that makes competitors pop, while the X5 M offers nearly sports car levels of performance with all the utility of a standard X5.

The 2010 Acura MDX still finds ways to improve—though the new grille, steering feel, and USB/Bluetooth omissions are out of character.

The boldly styled 2010 Cadillac SRX is richly appointed, with more enthusiast appeal than other crossovers.

TCC Rating
The 2010 Lexus RX 350 leaves few owners wanting more luxury or practicality, but the "passionate pursuit of perfection" could use a little more passion.
