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.

The Highlander is a large crossover with some super-sized competition.

If passenger space is a priority, consider the slightly more roomy Chevrolet Traverse.

The Honda Pilot is another option, and it feels more engaging--but the interior is the lowest-quality Honda cabin we've seen.

If you're never likely to venture off-road, there’s the Mazda CX-9, a nimble crossover with some DNA in common with the Ford Flex, the most taste-driven choice in the class.

The very family-friendly Toyota Highlander and Highlander Hybrid impress us with their space and versatility, but show no sign of enthusiasm.

The 2011 Chevrolet Traverse isn’t fun to drive, but it’s one of the best large crossover wagons for transporting the family comfortably and safely.

A singular look, along with top-shelf turbo power and features, earns the 2011 Ford Flex our top score among utility vehicles.
7.0

If you can get past the garish grille and overwrought look, the 2011 Honda Pilot is a fine family vehicle, with minivan-like interior space and decent performance.

The 2011 Mazda CX-9 can carry seven in comfort, but it loves curves more than almost any other roomy crossover.
