Actually a surprisingly large number of people think it is. Such threads pop up from time to time and general idea is that the Stratus is a very tame, easy to drive shell. Mazda 6 apprently is a bit more aggressive and there's others even more aggressive than that. Depending on track/setup people prefer one over the other. Ultimately I think one needs to experiment on their own to figure out what they consider best for their specific circumstances. GEt a numebr of shells you like and test them out.
