    Taking it back a notch ... Maybe I'm not that impressed because it's "too easy" to make horsepower these days? Or maybe it's just because I loathe the gaudy badging, not sure. All that matters is those who buy them, will enjoy them.

    I still remember the days when 225 hp moved the fastest domestic cars, now my wife's SUV puts over 300 through the front wheels and matches those old codgers in the quarter mile. Gets a lot better gas mileage too. Ain't tech grand?

    0-60 in under 6 seconds, and a sub-14 second quarter mile, was very fast not too long ago.

    Today, a Honda Accord will do that all day long...while delivering over 30 mpg combined.

    I like it, but am very disappointed no manual. I also think they are lying about the base price. Ain't gonna be able to find a base model :laughing:

    I suppose one could make the argument they're all manuals, since they went with a DSG box this time. ;) But yeah, I really wish there was a traditional manual option.

    Automated manual = automatic ;)
    I already have a car with a DCT, and that one is enough. I like rowing gears.

    If it doesn’t have a clutch pedal, it ain’t a manual in my book.
