This portends well for the CX 30 Turbo. I posted this on the 3 forum several days ago. It should be noted it's an anomaly . There are several postings on the web 0-60 with most results in the mid 6s. This, the only one that betters 6 seconds. I expect when the dust settles, the 3 will be good for low 6s and the CX 30, mid 6s, which ain't bad, about what a 175hp Hyundai Kona turbo does.

Would be faster if it had a better transmission. The outdated 6 speed is geared wrong for a fast 0-60. The car needs a good 8 speed trans.

Yes, but the broad torque curve somewhat mitigates the need for more ratios. It could sure do with crisper shifting though.
I agree as even with most modern Manuel transmission 95 percent of them on the market are 6 speed and the only thing I can see more gears doing is a bit more of a mpg increase .. other then that some software refinement on the PCM software for the turbo I think would help out allot. Also make tune sport mode on the turbo version to do less short shifting and allow the engine to rev up a little more for a more thoroughly solid quick acceleration and response.
