The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 2-Series may be an entry-level model in BMW's lineup, but it builds on a rich lineage, as a well-rounded luxury sports coupe with all the looks, handling and features that you might expect. The 2016 Volkswagen Beetle is a versatile retro compact, with a choice of powertrains and coupe or convertible body styles. It's your last chance to get a Volkswagen Eos in 2016; it's refined and comfortable, but there's more fun in its road manners than in its sheet metal.
