The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Chevy Camaro isn't practical, but it's stunning to look at and offers scorching performance--even without the ZL1 package. The 2012 Ford Mustang doles out all the tire-smoking pony-car thrills, but it's also grown to become quite a sophisticated car.
