Plenty fast lol)
Any car worth it's weight, can get to 120mph. I think it is how fast you can get there is what makes the difference, and owning the car fun. This car is not living up to the competition, 230 hp and 210 tq is really not that much. Especially when there is an option for a Camry SE that starts at $23,000 to have a 268 hp 248tq set up.

I love the car, the looks, and the wheels. The increased power is a step in the right direction, but came up short for me. Something closer to 250-270 is more in line with what I would want. Oh, wait, I already have that.
