There is a definite point with the car where the turbo kicks in. Around 3000rpm, as they say. But it's predictable and easy to drop the car into the middle of its power band when necessary.
I don't think it's the article fault. :)
CR seems to have a compulsion to make idiotic comments. They complain because a truck handles like a truck, and complain that a subcompact doesn't have a big trunk, or that it's small inside. You can't help but scratch your head and wonder what in the world are these doing reviewing automobiles? They should stick to refrigerators and coffee makers...
I think Consumer Reports tends to just point out the pros and cons without taking the context into account. That's left to the reader.
