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 Rogue hasn't scaled the sales heights as some of its competitors, and Nissan wants that to change.

It'll have to face down the short-wheelbase Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, with its equally snappy looks and its superior power output from a turbo four.

Mazda's CX-5 has the corner on crossover steering and svelte looks, but like the CR-V, it's a sluggish performer; the CR-V at least nets vast interior space from its gawky shape.

The Toyota RAV4 has been stripped down to two-row, four-cylinder basics; it looks and feels better for it, but it's also no firestarter.

The Rogue could have its toughest work ahead against the Ford Escape, with its loopy turbocharged power, its hot-hatch handling, and its future-drive set of infotainment features.

The 2014 Nissan Rogue gets mainstreamed in all the right ways, though engine noise and the teensy third-row seat are minor letdowns.

With authentically athletic looks and performance balancing out good passenger space, cargo versatility, and loads of high-tech features, the 2014 Ford Escape is attractive to a wide range of buyers.

The 2014 Honda CR-V isn't exactly sprightly, but it nails efficiency on a few levels and finally brings more features to the family-wagon fight.

The 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe is a little schizophrenic, but we dig both of its personalities. Those with larger families will want to look at the V-6 Santa Fe, while smaller families will enjoy the turbo-powered Santa Fe Sport.

The 2014 Mazda CX-5 is an attractive, well-designed small crossover with great gas mileage, as well as a light, athletic driving experience.

The 2014 Toyota RAV4 is sensible and spacious; but if driving fun is a priority, you can do better.
