The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 BMW 1-Series is part small luxury coupe, part sports car, and if you're okay with a tight interior and a sometimes-frustrating iDrive, you'll find happiness. The 2013 Porsche Boxster is one of the most fun, stylish, and luxurious roadsters available.
