TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Volkswagen Beetle ranges from green to sporty, all the while wearing a dapper take on its classic lines. 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.
