The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Audi A5 Coupe and Cabriolet bear one of the most elegant bodies in autodom, and drive with a light, easy touch. The 2011 Lexus IS C convertibles aren’t sports-car edgy, but they offer the practicality and refinement of cruise convertibles with a little more sportiness.
