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.

Connectivity is the calling card of the 2012 Lincoln MKX, and none of its direct competitors even come close to its technology.

Still, there's something to recommend every one.

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

Cadillac's SRX is one of the better-equipped vehicles in its class, and it gets a new V-6 engine this year, but it's not a hard-charging performer.

For those who still care about ruggedness, the redesigned Volkswagen Touareg still boasts decent off-road ability; those who default to safety can also study up on the Volvo XC90 or Acura MDX.
