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.

What just a few years ago felt like niche models now comprise the heart of the market.

In this hotly contested compact crossover segment, smaller families can find enough space, along with a little extra space for hauling 'stuff.' The Honda CR-V has just this past year been updated, and although it doesn't look much different its interior layout, ride, and refinement are improved.

The Chevrolet Equinox is another alternative, with a fuel-efficient base four-cylinder engine and interior appointments that are pleasing for the most part; it's also slightly larger than other models in this class.

The Subaru Forester offers standard all-wheel drive at a very competitive price, and its ride quality is impressive.

Kia's Sportage is a little smaller than the rest, and its ride is somewhat rougher while its feature set is strong.

The Toyota RAV4 is now the most dated design in this group; it's one of few vehicles in this class to offer a third-row seat, but it’s barely even usable for kids.

The 2013 Nissan Rogue may not have excitement in its corner, but its layout, features, and affordability make a lot of sense for smaller families.

TCC Rating
The 2013 Chevrolet Equinox is a good, affordable choice for cost-conscious families, but it doesn't skimp on comfort, safety, or the latest connectivity features.

TCC Rating
The 2013 Honda CR-V hits all the right marks for cost-conscious families—with its interior layout and safety ratings both best-in-class—although it doesn't feel as sprightly as former CR-V models.

A rakish crossover with a 260-horsepower four on tap, the Kia Sportage reboots its image on a few levels all at once.

TCC Rating
The rugged 2013 Subaru Forester handles well and copes confidently with any weather and road surface--and the XT turbo models are sporty--but its economy-car interior and sluggish automatic remain drawbacks.

TCC Rating
The 2013 Toyota RAV4 excels at mass-market talents like gas mileage and interior room--but for turbocharged fun in a crossover, you'll have to look elsewhere.
