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.

Ford’s Edge is similar in size to the Murano and, like it, comes only with two rows of seating.

The same’s true of the Lexus RX 350 and Mazda CX-7, but those crossovers offer distinctly different driving experiences.

The Lexus is geared to smooth driving and the industry-leading service provided by its dealers, while Mazda’s CX-7 is a sporty alternative to typical crossovers with tauter handling and a turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
