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 2010 Volvo XC90 has some strong competition from rivals that have been updated in the past year or two.

Like the Volvo, the BMW X5 offers a small third-row seat and excellent dynamics, but suffers from a confusing interior.

The Volkswagen Touareg and Mercedes-Benz M-Class are limited to just two rows of seats, but the Mercedes-Benz offers more powerful engines if you are willing to pay the steep premium.

The Acura MDX has Honda's enviably smooth engine and transmission, along with a relatively new shape, while the Volkswagen Touareg has great off-road capability.

TCC Rating
The 2010 Volvo XC90 has aged gracefully and now is more feature-packed than ever; however, its poor fuel economy tarnishes an otherwise superb vehicle.

TCC Rating
The 2011 Volkswagen Touareg has dropped some of its ruggedness in favor of the comfort suburban families want—but it's still not quite a rival to luxury-brand utes.

TCC Rating
The 2010 Acura MDX still finds ways to improve—though the new grille, steering feel, and USB/Bluetooth omissions are out of character.

TCC Rating
Though it's far from cheap, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz M-Class earns our kudos with hip styling riffs, shock-and-awe AMG power, and your choice of earth-saving powertrains.
