TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Honda CR-Z blazes a new trail for eco-performance—but we’re not quite following. The 2010 MINI Cooper/Convertible runs the gamut from smart econobox to thrusty sports convertible-all with unmatched driving feel and expertly interpreted styling heritage. The 2010 Scion tC offers more sophisticated handling and lavish features than the low base price would indicate.
