TCC’s Bottom Line
Stunning performance is still the calling card for the 2011 BMW M3; the weight it's gained may just be a sign of its success. If you’re alright sinking into anonymity but want a delightful top-down experience with an excellent all-season folding top, the 2011 Volkswagen Eos is it. Attractively restyled this year, the 2011 Volvo C70—a coupe that becomes a convertible—offers a strong overall package with a clean, pleasant interior.
