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. Get past the understated look of the 2013 Volkswagen Eos, and you'll find its turbo powertrain, smart handling, and refined, roomy interior to be a delightful combination. The 2013 Volvo C70 is neither a serious sports car nor a high-clout cruiser, but it's a comfortable, upscale convertible that feels luxurious without being too ostentatious.
