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 2011 MKX isn't as advanced as every rival model in every way, but it might just have the single feature every driver really wants, if you asked them in a weak moment: a way to play music and talk while sitting in traffic, without getting in trouble with the law.

It's connectivity, audio, and navigation functions—as well as the interface itself—that helps the MKX stand out in its class; MyLincoln Touch is a revolutionary feature, though not everyone (especially those who actually do like a lot of buttons) will like it.

Compared to the MKX, the RX 350 isn't as distinctive but it's even quieter inside.

The Cadillac SRX, which was redesigned last year, remains one of the better-equipped vehicles in its class, but like the MKX it won't deliver to those who are looking for performance.

On the more rugged side—for those who still care—there's the newly redesigned Volkswagen Touareg, which still boasts some manner of off-road ability, while for those looking for a higher-utility (yet still luxurious) design should consider the Volvo XC90 or Acura MDX.

You won't need any excuses to say you've chosen the 2011 Lincoln MKX; it delivers on the promise of the brand: top-notch American luxury, with some of the best luxury and tech features wrapped in.

With a few notable flaws in styling and features, the 2011 Acura MDX still impresses us with its friendly handling and gutsy power.

The 2011 SRX has the comfort and refinement luxury crossovers expect—plus a little Cadillac attitude.

Much of the appeal of the 2011 Lexus RX 350 and RX 450h rests in the way they provide comfort and security to driver and passengers while sealing out the world.

The 2011 Volkswagen Touareg has dropped some of its ruggedness in favor of the comfort suburban families want—but it's still not quite a rival to luxury-brand utes.

TCC Rating
The 2010 Volvo XC90 has aged gracefully and now is more feature-packed than ever; however, its poor fuel economy tarnishes an otherwise superb vehicle.
