2010 Mitsubishi Eclipse vs. Its Competition

2010 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

With its silky V-6 engine and responsive handling, the Honda Accord Coupe feels like it's worth its higher price.

The new Hyundai Genesis coupe has a rear-wheel-drive layout and more of a performance focus, with powerful V-6 and turbo four-cylinder engines.

And for those looking for a different sort of style, the base V-6 versions of the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro both bring crisp retro styling; the Mustang is available as a convertible.
