The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Volkswagen Eos has a sunny disposition and four real seats, along with great handling and VW's dual-clutch gearbox. The 2008 Volvo C70 feels light and gets lighter with the top down -- just don’t plan on taking many friends or much cargo along for the ride.
