The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Subaru BRZ can be every bit as thrilling as more powerful, more expensive sports cars. Its light weight, direct steering and excellent suspension make it a blast to drive. 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.
