160 isn't bad. It's the 146 lbs of torque in a 3000+ lb car that hurts.

I believe the 160 whp is at 5000 rpm. I wonder what hp we have at the usual 2-3,000 rpm. This thing needs a turbo!

160 hp at 6500 rpm, not 5000 rpm.

146 lb-ft of torque at 4450 rpm.

These are the manufacturer SAE net rated horsepower on 87 octane fuel.

The car doesn't weigh 3000+ lbs until you start putting a passenger in it, at least as long as you don't have a fully loaded Titanium hatch. The ST with its turbo and intercooler and modified suspension weighs in at closer to 3200 lbs though.

It's worse than I thought! lol. Who is going wind there engine up to 6,500 rpm?

I am not "really" complaining. I bought the beast for its sporty looks, excellent handling and above average fuel economy. History has proven that I can not be trusted behind the wheel of anything over 300 horsepower. Then there is the two wheeled variety....:)

Found one. Had been looking at late-model used, and spotted it on the lot. Serendipity.

The joke's on me though. We are consolidating down to one vehicle. Took my son out yesterday for his introduction to stick-shift driving. Niece is next. It is not easy to sit there calmly whilst your son repeatedly stalls your brand new car with barely 100 miles on it. LOL!

Here's a photo taken at a Culver's Restaurant just after taking delivery:
