If a car rides poorly, or suffers noticeable road noise in the cabin, there's not much of an argument to be had there. It is what it is. (That said, we always find a way...)
Styling, though? That's a whole other beast. It's also one of our greatest sources of debate, both within the CarAdvice offices and right here in the comments section of our reviews and news articles.
