Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
It says I'm different, understated, not afraid of being different or following the german norm Especially being 18 and passing other youths in their corsas and fiestas.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
My family of course love the car, having owned Saabs in the past, friends think the car is worth more than what is actually worth and numerous times people have said its 'posh'.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Most definitely. The car has exceeded my expectations. Drives brilliantly, great economy, great cabin & ergonomics, pracitcal, looks great, understated, safe, great performance and just a great all rounder.

What are you likely to buy next?
Silly question.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Driving it is a pleasure, infact I have covered 9k in 5 months which is crazy but the car is so comfortable, the seats are first class, no suprise when you think they were designed in conjuction with orthopedic specialists at the design stage. Long motorway journeys is a really strong point for this car, great economy, great mid range power and a well ergonomically designed cabin. The car rides brilliantly, and handles really well thanks to its rear wheel steering (RE-AXS) system. Can't stress enough how great it is to drive!

What's it like to park?
Parking is a breeze, good visibility and parking sensors to aid parking.

Living with it

No, only a battery for the key.

What's most practical about your car?
It's got a big boot that is well shaped so can cram a suprising amount of luggage. cabin space is good for front & rear paseengers.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
I love the Sat Nav. Only downside is that it won't accept postcodes.
