The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
Practicality and comfort take second billing to sportscar performance and flashy looks in the 2009 Pontiac Solstice. The 2009 Honda S2000 is a true sportscar, in the sense that it trades comfort and refinement for speed and performance.
