Accord Turbo
Elantra Turbo
'19 Jetta

Are there any others that competed for your interest?
I think you'll find the Jetta and Elantra much too small if you're considering the 6. Hyundai makes a great car (we're leasing a base model AT '17 Elantra which is fine and it was CHEAP) but the driving enjoyment just isn't there.

The Passat would be more in line, but I personally don't think VWs are reliable (or cheap to maintain) at all and the company has a LOT of baggage.

I guess you could look at a Camry or Maxima, but really my two top choices would be the 6 or the Accord 2.0T, which miraculously still comes in a stick.

Manual transmissions, wagons, and heavy metal are awesome. Zoom-Zoom \m/
