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.

Our expert editors build comparisons like this one to make it easy for you to understand the small handful of cars you should compare to whatever car you are already looking at. You get general thoughts on each car you should consider plus an easy way to compare basic information for yourself.

Shoppers looking for vehicles in this class prefer the passenger space of a minivan without the outward design of one, and in most cases, off-road ability isn’t needed.

One negative for the Outlook is pricing; the base XE model is a good value, but pile the XR with options and it can exceed $45,000, which is as much as some same-size luxury-brand models.

The CX-9 has a sportier look and feel, and it appeals to those who want to drive a little more enthusiastically.

The Toyota Highlander offers a sleeker appearance and revamped interior appointments.

Then there's the Pilot, which has a simpler, boxier appearance but good performance from its V-6 powertrain.

The Ford Flex—which is basically replacing the Ford Taurus X—holds the trump card for styling.

To most shoppers, the Flex’s distinct boxy appearance and three rows of comfortable seating is a strong selling point; the Flex also promises safety rivaling that of the Outlook.

The 2009 Honda Pilot looks more SUV-like in its second edition, but it has the room of a minivan, along with some notable styling miscues and expensive choices to make from the options list.

The 2008 Mazda CX-9 may be the best-driving full-size seven-passenger crossover out there. It is certainly one of the best looking and appointed.
