The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Volkswagen Eos isn't sexy, and it's one of the most practical choices among convertibles and there's a lot to like. The 2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible takes two steps back in styling and no steps forward in handling or performance.
