The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
A strong powertrain, usable backseat, and tight retractable hardtop make the 2012 Lexus IS 350C very enjoyable, even if it feels somewhat conservative. With a healthy dash of Scandinavian style and Volvo's excellent reputation for safety, the 2012 C70 makes a solid all-around choice for a hardtop convertible.
