The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Scion tC is not a tremendous value any more, but it finally has some character to call its own. The 2011 Ford Mustang lives up to all those juvenile, tire-smoking pony-car expectations; at the same time, it’s an unexpectedly capable, sophisticated coupe.
