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 first official pictures of the Volkswagen Tiguan have been released, along with news that the car will come with a choice of front ends. The first two will be called Trend & Fun and Sport & Style, and will have a maximum entry angle of 18 degrees at the front. The third model will be badged Track & Field, and a revised nose will make it much more off-road capable. It can take entry angles of up to 28 degrees.


Another new technology will be Offroad Mode, which with the push of a dashboard button will activate a raft of alternative safety features. This feature will only be on the Track & Field car, and will switch on the hill descent control and hill climb assist, improve the throttle response to allow more accurate torque delivery, and boost braking on loose surfaces.


The Tiguan will make its debut in production trim at September’s Frankfurt Motor Show and go on sale in Europe early next year.
