Looks kinda WRX Wagon-ish, but thats not a bad thing. I love it, definately cool.

Yes, cool. Saabs are cool, Impreza is cool Saab+Impreza=Very Cool.

Unfortunately, they seem to be a little overpriced - well , at least the Aero model is in Canada.

Still gets major points from me though.

I think its cool. Its got the Imprezza / WRX look, so I'm already sold. Its actually a car I would consider to own, and it looks like its a blast to drive.

I can't believe Saab moved the ignition to the steering column, though!

Saabs are cool. This car would be seriously uncool if GM hadn't pulled off this stupid Saabaru thing, but I think the end product is a great melding of two strong, quirky brands, so I'm happy. A little more Saab would've been nice, but, hey, whatever.

Cool.

meh. uncool. I like the 9-3 and the WRX better.

I put Hugh Grant Uncool and it has nothing to do with the performance. No matter how I look at this, it still isn't a Saab. The fact that Saab has fallen so far that they need to do something like this makes this model uncool...
Mr b00st
well i think it was either a stopgap highseller high profit model, or... they'd go under in the red. Still very sad.

if there was no such thing as a WRX wagon, itd be cool. but there is.

I saw the commercial for this one where it's driving on the Velcro road. I like it. Definitely cool.

The car is cool.
But I thought that commercial was retarded.

Next time you see the commercial, check out the facial expression on the chick riding in the backseat. It's priceless.

Thats exactly what I hate about it.

I think the car is pretty cool looking, although I'm glad Saab is designing the next generation of this model, rather than just grabbing it from Subaru or something...

Couple notes...

There is a WRX wagon... I see them all the time.


This Saab is a WRX Wagon... same engine... and underbody... just different cover and interior... and a softer ride..

Lovin it! It's so smooth at the front!

Saab took a nice car and made it non-fugly. I'd choose it over the original, but I wouldn't go around thinking I just bought a Saab.
