TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 MINI Cooper/Convertible runs the gamut from smart econobox to thrusty sports convertible--all with unmatched driving feel and expertly interpreted styling heritage. 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.
