The following is a quote from an astronaut speaking about a spacecraft

"There's so much more elbow room in there compared to the Soyuz," he said. "Instead of just bringing two of your buddies, you can bring six ... It's got modern electronics, it's got modern materials in the heat shield. So technologically, it's a giant leap beyond the Soyuz."

SpaceX reveals new-look passenger spacecraft

One could think of a number of snarky comments that could be made (especially given that Elon Musk is also the CEO of Tesla), but I'm kind of amazed that this is how human beings are speaking about spacecraft these days.

Perhaps it should all be taken with a grain of salt since this quote was spoken at a publicity event by someone who works for SpaceX. long until I can take a vacation to Mars?
