After bringing home our new SAAB 9-3 saloon a good few months ago now, my wife became rather fond of it and decided she’d like to change her BMW 118d for a 9-3 Sport Combi, and here it is.
We drove 150 miles yesterday to collect it from a lovely dealer in Wirral, Merseyside, it was originally leased from SAAB GB, and has had one very careful private owner since then. It’s a Vector Sport 1.9 TiD with some goodies including the aluminium roof rails, Xenon headlights, upgraded stereo and although standard, sits on an attractive set of 17″ SAAB alloys.
It’s in one of my favourite colour combinations for the Sport Combi; deep metallic petrol blue with Cream Sport leather interior, and it’s really been looked after.
I’ve ordered a set of roof bars and my son and I can make the most of it with some Autumn mountain biking.
Sitting elegantly next to my 9-3 saloon on the driveway, I can’t help thinking how amazingly fresh these SAABs still look, and after driving behind the Sport Combi for our 150 mile journey home yesterday, it gave me enough time to study the rear end, and I truly think it still has to be one of the most beautiful estate cars on the road.
