TCC Rating
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 2010 BMW X5 M is a high-performance version of the X5 utility vehicle. With a 555-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V-8, it's the sports car of utility vehicles—taking on the Porsche Cayenne—yet it still has a 6,600-pound tow rating and nearly all the other practical aspects of the other gasoline and diesel X5 models.

Despite its height, the X5 actually handles quite well, with the sport suspension and various upgrades in the X5 M making it feel especially capable. The X5 M can accelerate to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds, and comes with a special M Sport paddle-shift transmission.

Inside, it's a great package, with three rows of seating and enough head- and legroom for adults in the front two rows. Rear seats fold forward flat to open up a lot of cargo space, and interior fit and finish is characteristically BMW-close tolerances and quality materials abound. A long list of standard and optional features makes the X5 a luxurious ride that can be pushed over the top to fully loaded. The only real complaints with the X5 can be traced back to the curiously complex iDrive controller responsible for audio, navigation, and climate control.
