TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Mitsubishi Eclipse isn't particularly agile, but still offers head-turning styling with strong straight-line performance. The 2008 Honda Accord Coupe blends great looks with strong V-6 performance and good fuel economy, making it one of TheCarConnection.com’s top-rated vehicles.
