    The V-6 Accord and Camry might be faster in a straight line, but I would be interested to see how they compare to the Optima SX in terms of handling feel. I have driven the Accord sedan with the V-6 and read reviews. The V-6 Accord was quick in a straight line, but felt nose-heavy and not as well balanced as a model with the 4-cylinder engine. Some of the reviews that I read stated the same thing - nose-heavy when equipped with the V-6. Perhaps the 2.0 liter turbo 4-cylinder in the SX might offer better balance and less rotational inertia when going around tight turns.
