  1.  
  2. Looks like an old 9-5.

    If it'd been more exciting in the first place I might have complained.
     
  3. Based on the new (and hideous) Impreza?
     
  4. looks stupid
     
  5. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  6. It looks great
     
  7. No? Why would it be?
     
  8. it looks good for a second, then weird, then back to good looking. I would say it is ok, it is just that i get this BMW/Honda feel in the fron't.
     
  9. Yay Subaru.
     
  10. The curves look a little BMWesque.
     
  11. I honestly think Saab has one of the best-looking line-ups of any brand. If you havn't seen the new 9-5 on big alloys in bright red, you're not allowed to comment.
     
  12. Are you sure?
     
  13. I think I like it, and it being an estate makes it much better than if it were a sedan.
     
  14. The 9-3 was around before the 9-2 was even released. The 9-2 has never been available in Europe. Besides which, the Impreza is a great car, what's wrong with basing a car on it?
     
  15. This is just a face lift of the current epsilon based 9-3. Engine choices are the same, GM Ecotec (L850) and HFV6, but the car will now also be availible with AWD.

    The design is a mix using features from older Saabs (900, 9-5, 9-3), Aero X (hood and grille) and Cadillac BLS (doors - but not on the convertible it seems).

    Next generation 9-3, along with the next 9-5 is coming in a few years; both will be based on epsilon II.
     
  16. they just cant stop facelifting it, first they put those blacked out headlights......and now this
     
  17. I like the current version better. The Aero, anyway.
     
  18. You're thinking of the 9-5.
     
  19. it looks good but now looks more upmarket than the 9-5
     
  20. oh yea my bad........ ;-)
