It wasn't a crack at it though... he picked the STI as his preference between the two. Does he really need to compliment it further? Richard Hammon also mirrored the same response, having also preferred it but without really having an explanation. Again, remember that the cars are very similar on paper, so their inability to pick one thing (outside of the car being a better daily driver) may be attributed to them both having a lot in common -- turbocharged four-cylinders, four doors, AWD, LSDs all around, big wings, etc. If one magically had the exterior of a Porsche or the other had the performance of a hypercar, then they'd have a clearer answer of why they liked it over the other.
