Lexus IS250C / IS350C: The IS hardtop convertible from Lexus is based on that company's venerable IS sedan. The convertible is available in two strengths, 204-hp IS250C ($42,610) and 306-hp IS350C ($46,890). We like the Volvo's styling better, but the IS350C has a fantastic V6.
Infiniti G37 Convertible: Trunk space is virtually nil in Infiniti's hastily engineered G37 hardtop convertible ($47,900), but once you feel (and hear) all 325 hp from the 3.7-liter V6, you might not care. It is also available with a delightful 6-speed manual transmission, in case you like to do the shifting yourself.
Volkswagen Eos: Whereas the Lexus and Infiniti have rear-wheel drive, the VW Eos ($34,350) has front-wheel drive, just like the Volvo. Its turbocharged inline-4 makes less power than the C70's inline-5. The Eos is also the only one with a glass-paneled retractable hardtop.
