The Car Connection's Take

8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
Though it’s no longer fresh meat, the 2009 Dodge Charger sedan retains its stylish appeal for muscle-car enthusiasts—and the performance to match. The 2010 Hyundai Genesis is a power play for luxury credibility-and it's just about the equal of mid-size luxury rivals from Lexus and Infiniti.
