    saab 9-2x versus 9-3 SportCombi

    "Making its public debut at next month's Geneva Motor Show and due to go on sale in Europe and the United States from the fourth quarter of 2005, the 9-3 SportCombi will appeal to customers who require the versatility of a wagon, including smart load-carrying features and a generously proportioned cargo area, without compromising their desire for driving satisfaction."

    "In the United States, the new 9-3 SportCombi range will start with a well-equipped 210 hp turbocharged 4-cylinder. The high performance Aero model features an all-new turbocharged V6 that makes 250- hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque..."

    Going to be some overlap with the 9-2x, nice to see another wagon to the line-up.

    Saw the car in person at last years auto show and thought it was pretty damn cool.

    The 210hp will be the Linear vs the 165 hp linear 9-2x, it may be possible to get a base 9-3x for less than a pimped out 9-2x, but the 92's sell at a very deep discount at least for now.

    The 210hp saab 2.0 liter is a much more powerful engine than the 227 hp subbie 2.0 in terms of total torque (area under the curve) I'm curious to see what kind of whp the 93 will develop, but I'm sure it low torque peak will make it a lot easier to make a fast AWD launch without hammering the drivetrain.
