Default Help! Can't decide

Have never owned a Saab but want either the 9-3 Sedan or Combi. Which is hotter? Have to impress my college age daughter.

I think we all know that age group feels the sedan is cooler than a station wagon

Why do you have to impress her and what did she say?

Purely on looks the sedan, of course.

But when you move her to college and you can fit everything she owns in the back of your Combi.... that might impress her more.

I'm assuming that it's not your daughter you want to impress but rather, her hot college age friends?

Haha, but to be honest, I would go for the combi...you get the handling of the sedan with the utility of a suv.

I think the sport combie 9-3 looks cooler. It doesnt look like a "wagon" if u ask me. I think it looks sportier than the sedan. Get the frosty white color regardless.

the 9-5 is a little bit less cool, but I still like it better than the sedan.


Plus moving stuff to and from college, a sport combies cargo space will pay off a lot

May have to go with the hot metalic black but love the pepper green. Not sure if you can get the combi in that color?

Obviously you don't have a college student in your home. They keep you young and hip! She said wagons scream "car pool". Looks like I have to change her mind.

The SC is so much more practical. Get it and a puppy to ride in the hatch. Your daughter will like the dog so much she will forget about the car.
