    Good - I was looking at the Q3 but difficult to get the spec I needed for an affordable price - puts it on a par with dearer / larger SUVs which opens the choices up!
    Any-one considered the Range Rover Evoque?

    European union willing to have more restrictive regulations for the future, objectives remains to ban the diesels at least, and having petrol engines with 35% less emissions than today cars.
    so in my country, the taxes are for a 9-5 2.0 150hp around 600 bucks per year in the mean time a corrupted diesel pay less than I do ...so frustrating and not fair at all
    it's with my strength money amount, very difficult to anticipate the future, my goal is to buy a 9-3 vert in good shape and keeping this one for summer.

    Volvo would be high on my list if I would go back to a car or crossover. I rented a V40 diesel in southern Spain a few weeks ago and enjoyed it. Not a sporty car or very fun to drive but good design and great fuel mileage. An XC60 or XC90 with European Delivery would be a great experience after Saab.

    Yes the D2 V40 is quite a nice little car for shopping. But we use the 9-5s for the real journeys!
    XC 60 is almost suitable for a replacement - just have to wait for a petrol version.
    Liked the Ford Edge in Montana - petrol and auto - never could work-out the fuel consumption but it was a holiday rental!
    managed almost
    2,000 miles in a week!

    I occasionally think "what is a good replacement for a Saab?". I've owned the Saab 9-3 (9-3SS), which is similar to the 9-3/900 (I also had that), which is similar to the classic 900 (I also had that). Now that Saab is gone, I have a BMW 320i that I bought in 2013.

    Recently, I drove a 2019 Volkswagen Jetta (new generation, 2019 is the first year). There were slight similarities to a Saab. So for me, that is another data point. A Jetta as well as a 320i can fill in for a Saab. Not quite the way I like it but closer than a horse or donkey.

    The Jetta felt a little light weight compared to a 9-3 but similar to my old 1999 9-3. It's not a hatchback. It comes in a manual but the rental car was automatic. The rental car had fewer than 1300 miles, an essentially new car. The Jetta is made in Mexico and not sold in Germany. To me, it doesn't drive like a sports sedan but almost does.
