That said, the 2.5i is fine for a daily driver and like others have said, the 6speed makes it feel pretty quick. I've driven a CVT and found it adequate. It's not fast nor is it supposed to be or trying to be fast.
I have a 2011 2.5i Limited with CVT and it is a fine transmission. There is plent of pick-up. The GT is also nice, actually what i wanted (I cant drive stick... shhhh....) And i am pretty sure the GT takes premium fuel, thats a turn off for me... I think you would be happy with it though... exspecially when you hit your first snow storm
