TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 BMW 1-Series is part small luxury coupe, part sports car, and if you're okay with a tight interior and a sometimes-frustrating iDrive, you'll find happiness. The Chrysler 200 offers lots of comfort and value, but looks outdated and lacks refinement. The 2014 Volkswagen Eos is understated and conservative, but if you can look past that you'll find that it's responsive, refined, and day-to-day usable in a way most convertibles aren't.
