Over the past few years, there's been a new series of muscle car battles, as Ford and Chevy duke it out to give their retro-looking pony cars modern muscle performance.
The Chevrolet Camaro drives surprisingly well, though it's a tight fit inside and headroom is limited; there's a 580-hp ZL1 model that's a legitimate thriller behind the wheel.
The Mustang is another one that's shockingly quick in its Shelby and Boss 302 models, all while offering an ergonomically-designed interior and nearly as much technology as the Challenger.
The Hyundai Genesis Coupe isn't necessarily a pony car, but with rear-wheel drive and an affordable price, it fits as competition against the Challenger V-6.
If you're looking for better handling and sharper driving dynamics, perhaps consider the relatively light, far more raw Nissan 370Z.
