The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Scion tC coupe has an interesting personality, made a bit better this year, but it's standing in the shadow of the excellent FR-S sports car. The 2014 Ford Mustang delivers some of the best performance-car bang for the buck, all with a level of sophistication that's surprising given the brash sound and classic looks.
