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 2015 VW Eos is comfortable, refined, and surprisingly practical–if you don't mind its nondescript exterior.
