2005 Saab 9-2X Linear 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 4cyl 5M)
The 9-2x is a Subaru Impreza we all know that. However, it shares components from the WRX a cult followed vehicle for its fun drive and good performance. The Saab offers the same features as the best WRX on all models of the 9-2x. The syling is much improved over the Subaru especial the 2.5 sport model of the the outback or whatever. With discounts from dealers it is not to much more then the subaru but is much better in fit and finish in small details. A better performer then the Impreza. Equal to the WRX if you opt for the turbo and a nice in between if you get the linear.
Simple, The looks! Subaru reliability and performance with Saab style.
On a side note my only complaint is the plastic shift knob makes shifts feel soft. A MONO update solves this.
