Default Used 2015 Q50 VS New 2018 Camry V6

The new Camry redesign, in my opinion, looks really good. Like, really good. I just wanted some opinions on what you guys think about this.

2018 Camry

Pros:
Really Good Looks
Better 295 HP V6 Engine, compared to 268 HP of older Camry.
Safety features and cool tech.
Lower, wider, and longer than old Camry.
Probably better fuel economy (except hybrid Q50).
Newer, better interior, IMO.

Cons:
It's a Camry.
FWD, IT'S A SIN.
Slower than Q50.
Less mods available because New car, and it's a Camry.

Q50

Pros:
Faster.
More mods.
RWD, The way it's supposed to be.
Hybrid performance model offered.

Cons:
IMO, Inferior quality interior.

In all honesty, I'm not even considering getting the Camry, but it does look like a very big step in the right direction for Toyota.

What do you guys think?

Yea I understand it's still a Toyota, but it's a better Toyota, If it was RWD, it would be a hard decision for me, because it is newer and everything.

They build quality vehicles but they are just bland and not fun to drive. I'm not going to argue that they've done a good job of making this version of the Camry a little less "invisible" but from a driving dynamics standpoint, I would be willing to bet that within two weeks, you'd be dying to get rid of the Camry because driving it was like eating plain white toast. They've been the best selling (or near best selling) sedan for years because the have nailed the utili-box car for the masses.

I think I'd definitely be more interested in taking this for a spin. The Kia Stinger GT Is Kia's Fantastic 365 HP Rear-Wheel Drive Sport Sedan

I don't think these cars really compete. The new Accord is nice also and it's fairly quick but it's not really fun to drive. I don't think many people cross shop Accords' / Camrys' with Q50's

Yea I know they don't compete, but if they follow the general guidelines of cars like this, I'm just saying that it'd be in my budget range, since a New Camry is usually just over 30k and a used 2015 Q50 is around the same for my area. Like I said, I'm not actually considering it, just food for thought. I don't have anything against Toyota though, I do hope for a new Supra come 2020 and that would make me interested. Anyways, Yes to Q50HybridAusTex, I would also like to see how that is going to drive. It looks promising and could be a great way for Kia to get in on the sporty car game.

The front of the car is still butt ugly with too much grill flair.

Overall I think it will be business as usual.
If people have enough money they will get a lexus ES 350.
For those that don't or want to be a little less showy, then camry v6.

I got the q50, and the only way I'll trade my car for a camry or a stinger is if they camE in a manual transmission. At first I didn't want to ge the q50, but the q50 has alot of power. My first car was a scion tc btw. I was actually debating on getting the new s4 or the s5, but the car looks a bit small for me.

As far as Toyota go, they should really bring the supra back like how the domestic cars are doing. Maybe in a couple more years.

I'd have to admit that it does look pretty good but I still wouldn't choose it over the Q50.
