The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The Ford Mustang keeps its newfound finesse and pony-car attitude, blasting past its 50th year with a rorty new Shelby GT350 variant plus more ways to stand out from the crowd. The 2016 Scion tC is a practical coupe with decent space and fuel economy, but power and performance are far from exciting.
