The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2009 Volkswagen Eos isn't sexy, and it's one of the most practical choices among convertibles and there's a lot to like.
