Why do Saabs stand out from the crowd? Is it because they’re so individual, is it because they’re not like other cars, or is it just because I look out for them?
It may be all of the above, but to me they have huge kerb appeal, they make me stop and stare, I enjoy looking at them.
The 9-3 may be over 10 years old, but no matter what angle you look at it from, it really is gorgeously designed and timeless. It all feels just so Saab, understated with a touch of aggressiveness, distinctive side profile with headlights flowing through to the sides, the sleek line of the bonnet…
I often wonder what I’ll do when the time comes to replace my 9-3, what would I choose? after all, none of us know what the owners of Saab will offer us, or even if they’ll be available here in the UK.
As I watch other cars flash past, I realise there still aren’t many I’d choose over a Saab though, new or old.
