Definitely a solid look, and super sharp, chiseled lines in the recent Audi mold.

I like that the Kia Stinger, to me, is the goldilocks size, just between the A5/S5 and the A7/S7. Yields a bit...

RX should win this particular usage 10 times out of 10. Unless you need to tow frequently, the RX is more comfortable, with better on road driving dynamics and responsiveness.
