I would take it back and ask why the car makes you unhappy first !
Having said that, you should have had a real good test drive to find out if it suits you...
The car itself is so new that it MUST have different settings for ride comfort anyway, try fiddling with the ride/suspension settings before you start to hate it.
Have a fiddle around with Custom rims, wheel tire packages for your ride - RIMSnTIRES.com
for seeing what smaller sizes matchup to your current rolling diameter.
They will reduce the amount of bump you feel from narrower tyres and more "impact absorbing" side walls, but I don't know that its the vibration that is getting you. It may be possible for the dealership to fit some smaller wheels for you to test for a day from a traded car, but I think that the problem lies in the car being factory tight, and the traffic that you drive in highlighting the tight drivetrain.
Have you had it out on the open road yet, and if so, did you still have the same motion sickness issues?
I'd liken the issue to driving a manual car in one gear in traffic, your either taking off or stopping, not some much just coasting smoothly. Is this what you are experiencing?
Just a wacky idea, is there any chance you are getting exhaust fumes leaking into the car?
