The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

8.0

TCC’s Bottom Line

Riper and more mature, the latest Chrysler 300 has classically handsome looks and in the right versions, big rear-drive fun. The 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is one of the best performance-car values, with several models fitting the needs of either daily commuters of track-day enthusiasts.
