2007 Saab 9-3 2.0T SportCombi Review

Sport Activity Vehicle

In short: An easy to drive, fairly compact sportswagon.

After being governed by General Motors for the past few years, the 2007 sport wagon remains true to its roots. With its functional yet compact frame, decent horsepower, and reasonable starting price, the Saab 9-3 2.0T SportCombi is a great option for families looking for something more than the standard minivan.
