2005 Saab 9-2X Aero 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
This 5-door Saab/Suub/Saabaru (pick your poison) is a step up from the great Impreza WRX wagon. More precise and comfortable handling, better body design, increased noise reduction, and overall better good looks differentiate this vehicle greatly from the Subaru. It's price is a bit on the steep side, but it's worth every penny. If the performance isn't quite up to snuff, you can always add aftermarket power toys to blow away the competition! I love this car, and I've owned and test-driven several 5- doors. This is by far the best of the bunch! Too bad they're practically sold out of the '05s. Buy an '06--you won't regret it!
Acceleration, cruise control (smooth as glass), looks, features, available packages, comfort level. This car will certainly get you noticed!
Better "premium" stereo with auxillary inputs, sport AT-transmission, better acceleration below 3K RPM (turbo programming)
