Ignoring my obvious Subaru bias there are quite a few other vehicles out there that could be better choices. I think they're just happy they actually did SOMETHING to the design of that car.
0 to 60 in 6 seconds comes pretty close. Definitely better than an automatic WRX. I drove the 2 litre WRX and thought it was a joke. I got out of it thinking "you must have to launch this thing at 6000 rpms to get a sub 6 seconds zero to 60". Those 5.5 0 to 60 times on stock WRX's? Forget about it. Not going to happen unless you have a warhehouse of spare transmissions LOL.The Camry is a an awesome sleeper: You don't have to worry about people thinking you're a scrawny high school kid!
