The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
Don't let the brash sound and classic looks fool you; the Ford Mustang offers some of the best performance-car bang for the buck--delivered with surprising sophistication. The retro-themed 2013 Dodge Challenger is actually a comfortable touring coupe, but it can play to all the tire-scorching musclecar expectations when a Hemi's under the hood.
