Quick Specs
7.2
The 2012 Mitsubishi Eclipse marks the end of an era, and leaves us nostalgic for the Eclipses of the early 1990s.
8.4
The 2012 Ford Mustang doles out all the tire-smoking pony-car thrills, but it's also grown to become quite a sophisticated car.
7.6
The 2012 Scion tC is starting to develop an interesting personality, though it's still not very fast or exceptionally nimble.
