Excellent car killed by inept marketing
By tonedebone on
2005 Saab 9-2X Aero 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Take one globally respected rally car, add a pinch of style and a sprinkling of refinement; Sounds like the recipe for success. Trouble is, Saab thinks just putting their name on Subaru's econobox without any other major changes suddenly makes it worth BMW or Audi money. For what it is (a handsome, fast and agile wagon) this car can not be faulted. For what it claims to be (a premium branded vehicle) it falls way short.
Looks, handling, performance and very comfortable seats. Xenon lights are awesome.
Interior is more Kia than Bimmer. Subaru's roof rails should be available.
