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 upmarket brands offer compact SUVs with a little more panache than your average Honda CR-V.

Acura, in fact, offers its own version of the Honda CR-V in the RDX, though it has much racier styling, a turbo powerplant, and lots of high-tech goodies.

The new Audi Q5 matches the new GLK in size but has the sleek silhouette of its big brother, the Q7 ute.

BMW's X3 is the granddaddy of this group, and the current version makes up for past sins with a much better ride and improved steering feel.

Land Rover's LR2 has the upright style to match the GLK—and true off-road hardware for those so inclined.

The 2009 Audi Q5 sports the sleek lines of a sweet German sedan, a date-worthy cabin, and good, hefty, but gimmicky handling.

The 2008 Acura RDX gets its edge from turbo power and crisp handling, but it can feel a little nervous and cramped.

The 2008 Land Rover LR2 splices the ruggedly stylish look that draws people to the legendary British brand with honest practicality, without the gas-guzzling and clumsy handling.
