The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Infiniti G37 Convertible doesn't suffer the usual styling compromises, but it's a little less exciting to drive than its Coupe cousin. The 2012 Volkswagen Eos convertible underplays its hand too much--the styling's not nearly as grabby as its turbo power and its smart handling.
