The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. Attractively restyled this year, the 2011 Volvo C70—a coupe that becomes a convertible—offers a strong overall package with a clean, pleasant interior.
