What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For Looks live up to the Sport Wagon name; it's quick, too

Against Chassis can't cope with more powerful engines

Verdict Looks the part, but the rest doesn't come up to scratch

Go for… 1.9 TiD 150 Linear

Avoid… 2.8 Aero

Saab 9-3 Sport Wagon
  • 1. Watch for uneven tyre wear, which could indicate misaligned suspension
  • 2. Leather trim, sat-nav and a good stereo system will make the car easier to sell
  • 3. It has extremely comfortable seats and a sound driving position with a wide range of adjustment
  • 4. If you have to carry large loads, the 9-3 may not be up to the job
  • 5. Go for the 150bhp version of the 1.9-litre TiD turbodiesel - it's the best engine for this car
