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.

Starting around $34k and exceeding $50k with the right options, the 2014 XC70 runs with mainstream crossovers on the low end, but competes with luxury SUVs at its best.

It's less expensive than any of the comparably-equipped Audi, Mercedes-Benz or BMW products, but the Acura MDX and Lexus RX 350 hang out around the price point.

The MDX offers sporty driving dynamics and new styling for 2014, while the Lexus also offers a hybrid option.

On the less expensive side, the Subaru Outback is less luxurious, but is a near-match in the tall wagon category.

The Audi Allroad was new last year and lends luxury from the brand's lineup to sedans to the slightly more rugged dynamics suited to a crossover.

There's also Volvo's XC60, which may be more of a crossover than a wagon, but it's worth a look.
