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. 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.
