The 332 horsepower 3.7-liter V6 will nail 60 mph from zero in 5.1 seconds, and the rear-wheel drive configuration means it's a hoot to thrash. The sporty cabin is comfy and handsome, and in Touring trim, it also adds nice touches like leather seats, BOSE audio, active noise cancellation, and navigation.
