Here's a quote that makes you wonder about the editors' sanity:
"But most of us feel VW won the styling award for this whole group anyway, and the rest are somewhat generic."
OK, the Accord and Camry are generic. And while clean design, the Passat is actually quite generic too. But to call the Altima and esp. the 6 "generic" is simply insane.
There's a bunch of other nonsense in this article that I won't bother with. I think the 6 placed very well and I more or less agree with the final rankings, except I would place the Passat in front of the Camry. But some observations they make are just ridiculous IMO.
Notice the Accord beat the 6 because of luggage space and EPA rated mileage (even though the 6 beat them all *as tested*"....that's too bad.
I'm happy to see the 6 owns in competition in the driving excitment catagory.
