The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Part hatchback, part convertible, and all fun, the 2012 MINI Cooper Convertible is in a class by itself--literally. The 2012 Chevy Camaro isn't practical, but it's stunning to look at and offers scorching performance--even without the ZL1 package.
