TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Dodge Charger is starting to show its age against many of its rivals, but its muscle-car appeal and low pricing will never get old. The 2010 Ford Taurus punches up Ford’s reputation for quality and features, with an engaging new SHO model to boost. The 2010 Hyundai Genesis is a power play for luxury credibility-and it's just about the equal of mid-size luxury rivals from Lexus and Infiniti.
