The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.8
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 2015 Volkswagen Beetle offers plenty of powertrain choice and decent practicality in a retro-leaning package. The 2015 VW Eos is comfortable, refined, and surprisingly practical–if you don't mind its nondescript exterior.
