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 Mitsubishi Outlander simply isn't the performer that you'll find the Mazda CX-5 or Ford Escape.

However, those vehicles don't offer the same seating versatility for the whole family that you'll find the Outlander.

To that point, this Mitsubishi is priced to compete with the likes of the RAV4, Santa Fe, and CR-V, but its third row gives it a leg up in the price-per-passenger category here.

We'd also consider the Dodge Journey with its third-row option, as well as its optional Pentastar V-6.

And, there's the Chevrolet Equinox, which feels extra spacious if you're not looking for a third row.
