The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
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 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.
