The 2012 Ford Mustang has many personalities, but not as many direct competitors.
The V-6 version now is a worthy competitor to cars like the Hyundai Genesis Coupe and Nissan 370Z.
The Z is lighter, more nimble and more like an all-out sports car than the Mustang; the Genesis Coupe is sized right, but lacks some of the finesse in its drivetrain that the Z delivers, though it's still a great bargain.
The V-8 Mustang GT feels like a serious performance car now, and it's just as quick as the Chevrolet Camaro SS, and we like its rev-happy feel a little better.
The Camaro has a lot less head room and a very plain interior, too--and it doesn't have any of the Mustang's infotainment razzle-dazzle.
