The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2012 Scion tC is starting to develop an interesting personality, though it's still not very fast or exceptionally nimble.
