The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 BMW 2-Series takes the former 1-Series Coupe into more mature, well-equipped, design-forward territory. The 2014 Porsche Cayman adds power, lightness, and comfort improving on the strengths of the last generation while fixing the weaknesses.
