The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Mitsubishi Eclipse isn't particularly agile, but still offers head-turning styling with strong straight-line performance. Nostalgia is still a big part of the appeal, but the 2010 Ford Mustang is now every bit a modern, refined sport coupe.
