My buddy who drives a GS-F might disagree with that opinion....The rest of the current Toyota and Lexus line-up? Boooooring. And I don't mean the "Oh, it looks grey and bland" type of boring (because frankly that also fits to my Tiguan) but "Sorry, we don't care about making nice cars" kind of boring. My VW may be bland but it's at least nice to drive.
As far as passion goes, I don't see Europeans doing much better. VAG is essentially killing manuals in favor of economy/laptimes. Porsche went with Subaru motors for most of their line up. BMW makes cars by the foot and even the ///M is more computer on wheels than a pure driver's machine these days. MB makes no interesting cars outside of their beyond overpriced super cars. Nissan/Infinity and Subaru on the other hand still make real enthusiast cars to the point that Infiniti dropped the all pervasive electric steering in their Q60S for better feel
