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.

If you're after a stylish crossover, the Murano is hard to beat, but there are many that offer more room or better gas mileage.

The Ford Edge, for example, offers a turbocharged four-cylinder with pep and efficiency, plus MyFord Touch and its voice-driven, LCD-equipped control interface for phone, climate, navigation, and more.

The Acura RDX was new last year, and like the Murano offers a smooth V-6 engine, but paired with a more responsive six-speed automatic transmission and a healthy standard equipment list--plus better seating all around, and a price to match the higher-tier Murano trims.

The Toyota Highlander, and Lexus RX, for that matter, are smooth and offer hybrid variants, but don't offer the character and style of the Murano.

Dodge's Journey, on the other hand, offers its own unique style, an surprises with its useful, nearly van-like interior.

The 2014 Nissan Murano is stylish and refined, but lacks some of the space and efficiency found in competitors.

The 2014 Acura RDX offers a relatively sporty look and driving feel, as well as a quiet, comfortable interior and top-notch safety; but features or flair it's no standout.

The 2014 Dodge Journey offers three rows of seats in an easy-to-manage package, all for an affordable price.
