The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Volkswagen Eos convertible underplays its hand too much--the styling's not nearly as grabby as its turbo power and its smart handling. 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.
