Jalopnik commentary/reviews/readers tend to prefer small, lightweight, bare-bones cars. Nothing wrong with that but this is why they place the Spark over the Camaro. The Camaro isn't for everyone, especally in today's "greenie" world. It takes more skill to drive compared to a transportation appliance, big-windowed, bubble car like the Spark (not docking GM for the car....every car manufacturer has one). Plus, people need to realize car weight is part of the deal on a 400+ hp RWD car. More robust suspension/chassis parts equals more weight.
They hit on decent points for all the cars though.

Unless you wake up every morning and choose between an Aston Martin and a Porsche then you're just an ass if you dont like any of the cars on that list.
