The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 BMW 3-Series upholds its legacy of superb handling, excellent performance, and high quality, though small rear seats and fussy controls are minor flaws. The 2010 Volkswagen Eos is a striking convertible that offers a lot of standard equipment, plus four-season practicality.
