The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
Can’t make up your mind between practicality and performance in a convertible? The 2010 Lexus IS 350C is a nice, sporty middle ground for top-down thrills. The 2009 Infiniti G37 Coupe does a neat convertible trick: it keeps all the charm of the Coupe while opening up more to the world outside.
