Having your cake and eating it

2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
This is my first Camry. Recently I owned a 2010 Mazda 6 3.7 and a 2012 Kia Optima 2.4. The Camry simply is a class above these two. I hadn't even driven a Camry or a Hybrid before June this year. I believe cars should go around bends when asked to, which is why I never owned one. However, Toyota have re-worked the suspension and it handles better than my Mazda, although not quite as good as the Optima. The hard ride is new to Camry owners, but it is there, believe me. However, it holds the road well, the Bridgestone Turanza tires appear to help.
Build quality, 0-60 mph in just over 7 secs and yet you get 35-43 mpg.
Road holding is good. Is this really a Camry?
Hard ride, please copy Altima and Fusion's superb suspension set up.
XLE is poorly decked out. Evertthing is an extra, poor standard warranty.
