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. Part coupe and part convertible, the 2010 Volvo C70 is a bit plain on the outside, but offers a clean, well-turned interior and a strong overall package.
