The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
A comfortable touring coupe most of the time, the retro-themed 2012 Dodge Challenger can turn in blistering musclecar performance when it's got a HEMI. The 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is one of the best performance-car values, with several models fitting the needs of either daily commuters of track-day enthusiasts.
