Auto Express have an interesting test published at the moment.
I’m in 9-1 excitement mode and any tests in what I believe should be the car’s sector are of acute interest.
This test pits the new Volvo C30 against the Audi A3 and the Mercedes C220. I’ll let you guess who the winner is, but suffice to say its an interesting result and a sector of the market that has me licking my lips in anticipation. Saab really could do something very exciting here.
And the Ovlov is around 19,000 pounds (I don’t know where the key is for the symbol). That seems mighty expensive, even for a ‘premium’ hatch. The base 9-3 in the UK is around 16,000 pounds.
Thankfully, both the report and its coverage seem to be sympathetic to Saab and its situation insofar as it has to be administered and supported by Holden to a large degree.
I’m not sure what this is, but it’s messy and very interesting. From Flickr. Interestingly, a look through the photographers other shots shows that it’s Martin, who’s had a photo in the SOTW section of this site before.
And you think GM might be in some trouble….
This one’s for those of you with some time to kill and an interest in the industry outside of Saab. Read this, from Autoextremist and then read this. There’s a cancer at Chrysler and Dr Z may not necessarily have the answers.
It’s bad enough having to try and decipher the spin that big companies put out into the public arena. Imagine how frustrating it’d be if you had to deal with it internally in trying to earn a living.
