TCC’s Bottom Line
The Charger R/T is a passionate play in a niche full of milquetoast four-doors. You don't have to wear a mullet to love it and own it. The 2011 Ford Taurus isn’t quite a game-changing sedan, but it's a handsome, solid, high-quality choice. For road or track, the 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is one of the best performance values on the market.
