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.

Infotainment and connectivity are the new battleground in luxury vehicles, and no crossover fields as much content as the 2013 Lincoln MKX.

The battle is drawing closer, though: the 2013 SRX gets CUE, Cadillac's touchscreen system that uses iPad-like touch and voice controls in the same way as MyLincoln Touch.

Lexus' Remote Touch mouse controller runs functions on most versions of the RX 350; unlike its competitors, the Lexus also comes in hybrid trim, though fuel-economy benefits are debatable.

For those who still care about ruggedness, the redesigned Volkswagen Touareg still boasts decent off-road ability.

Finally, the Volvo XC60 has a serene cabin and lovely styling, as well as class-leading safety technology and crash-test scores, but infotainment systems and gas mileage that lag the category.

The 2013 Volkswagen Touareg delivers good performance and a luxurious interior--although it's a mainstream brand asking for a luxury-vehicle price.

The 2013 Volvo XC60 carries on the tradition of Volvo wagons--even their top-of-the-class safety--only in a modern, fashion-conscious crossover.
