Body style and trim is a matter of personal taste for sure. I like it but can dig that others don't. But the engine is a different matter. One has to drive the 3.0 liter turbo-diesel to appreciate it. I have driven both the high end gas (petrol) and the diesel, and the diesel is no slouch by any means.
