Just got the July 2009 print version of Car & Driver.

Mustang 1st -- 209 pts -- lighter and tighter in every way, good visibility, engine sound

Camaro SS 2nd -- 193 pts -- like acceleration and grip, inventive interior; dislike angry appearance, tiny, trunk, hard seats, and "nose-deep-in-a-hole feeling" (high beltline)

Challenger SRT8 3rd -- 190 pts -- too heavy, awful tires

The Camaro was only a tenth quickere to 60, 4.8 vs. 4.9. In the "street start," it was 0.3 quicker, 5.2 vs. 5.5.

Scoring gave one-point edges to the Mustang in handing and steering feel, and 24 to 21 in "fun to drive."

Even in "gotta have it," which they usually use to tilt the outcome, the Mustang was given an extra point. Is there stronger public demand for the revised Mustang than for the new Camaro?

On the Mustang's steering: "it's fast, direct, and though still a bit isolated, far more naturally weighted than that of the other two." I've personally felt that steering is GM's weak point for at least a decade, but they have been getting better.

I've been wanting to test drive the new Camaro. Now it seems that a test drive of the new Mustang is also mandatory.
