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 Toyota Highlander Hybrid looks virtually the same from the outside as conventional four-cylinder and V-6 versions of this popular family crossover,

The Highlander Hybrid shares a powertrain with the much pricier, ritzier 2010 Lexus RX 450h. It uses a specially tuned 3.3-liter V-6 paired with two electric motors where the transmission would go, plus one more electric motor that provides all-wheel drive by powering the rear wheels. The gasoline engine is smooth and refined, and when combining gasoline and electric torque, the hybrid system produces 270 horsepower. This gives the 2010 Highlander Hybrid quick V-8-style acceleration, even though it's larger and heavier than previous editions. The EPA rates the Highland Hybrid at 27 mpg city, 25 mpg highway.

The Highlander Hybrid's all-wheel drive, which replaces mechanical drive with an electric motor to power the rear wheels, isn't suitable for extreme off-road conditions though it should be adequate for slippery driveway duty.
