TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Honda CR-Z is your best choice if you're looking for a two-seat hybrid sport coupe, but it doesn't excel in either handling or fuel economy. Not quite fast, and not quite nimble, the latest Scion tC is on its way to developing an interesting personality. The 2013 Beetle Turbo and TDI rightfully stir some excitement, especially with new convertible variants offered, but the base model's still a bit boring.
