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 competition to the 2009 Subaru Tribeca is heated, although the segment includes many vehicles that are a bit lacking in personality.

The Toyota Highlander is one example; it comes in two- and three-row versions and has available V-6 and Hybrid versions, which broaden its appeal, but it’s certainly not engaging to drive.

The Honda Pilot is one of the most admired crossovers available, but some think its bold new look took the place of the original B9 Tribeca.

The Nissan Murano sports a new look and features a beautiful new interior, but doesn't offer a third-row seat.

The Ford Edge has almost universally appealing good looks from the outside, but from the inside it’s not as quirky or fun to drive as the Tribeca.

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 2009 Nissan Murano combines good handling and a recognizable style with a much more sophisticated interior.

If you don't require a third-row seat, the 2008 Ford Edge is a fashionable, satisfying alternative in the crowded pack of mid-size crossovers.

Most Americans prefer mushy white bread, and the 2008 Toyota Highlander is a larger, high-quality "loaf" that will satisfy most every consumer.
