This alone should be enough to make you click through and read this review of the Saab 9-3 Sport Combi by Stephan Wilkinson at Forbes.
As a card-carrying Saab zealot who’s owned four of the Swedish-to-the-core cars, I approached the company’s new compact model, called the 9-3, with skepticism: It’s built on the same platform as the Chevrolet Malibu and Pontiac G6 sedans.
Surprise — this is the best Saab I’ve ever driven.
There. Off you go.
Personally speaking, I’ve been a big backer of the SportCombi since I saw the first photos back whenever. I’m not surprised in the least that an old-time Saaber would be pleased with this car. It’s got the right measures of style, functionality, difference and aggro-when-required – and it looks just magnificent.
I’ll let you read the full review yourself. It’s not a huge undertaking, but it’s quite good.
Stephan concludes with the following:
Thanks to Ken for the tip.
