I know, hence the smiley face.
As far as @shadowfax 's comment, I partially agree but then if you disable the turbo on any of these cars I bet the acceleration would be sub-par.
I came from a 4 cylinder Camry to this Veloster Turbo and I still think the Camry had decent power and I did not see the need for a V6 on that car. BUT, if you wanted a fun car to push once in a while on the weekends, the V6 Accord esp in coupe would be one affordable car.
At the end, seems like we have to streamline our taste a little bit with the rest of the world. A Corolla is considered a good size family car in Europe. My friend rented a "regular" car in a recent trip, they gave him a small sedan (with automatic since he does not drive stick) and he said he was struggling with the acceleration on the thing. It is just a matter of what you are used to.
