They have become rare, the Saabs with low mileage. At the moment there are two interesting specimens for sale in their year-old car condition. One of them is on the way to becoming a classic. The other is a practical individualist for every day. Both vehicles offer the chance to drive a Saab for many years to come.
Saab 9-3 Vector sports suit 1.8t 2009
In beautiful Vienna, a Saab 9-3 sports suit from 2009 is offered. Saab Austria was the first owner, then he was put away in a private collection. The owner reports of an air-conditioned garage, which is good for preserving the substance. The annual car condition is insured and is also credible at 19.900 kilometers, or less.
The well-known 2.0 liter turbo engine provides the drive. For marketing reasons it mutated to the Swedes to the 1.8t, but still has a displacement of 2 liters. The four-cylinder engine delivers 150 hp from the start, with a Hirsch performance increase it now comes to 196. The unit is pleasant to drive, has a nice power development, and is frugal with fossil fuel. In theory, you could even put in vegetable fuel.
Because the 9-3 is a rare BioPower version that would prefer to burn ethanol. Which, due to incomprehensible government decisions, is almost impossible to buy in Germany. BI-Xenon cornering lights and beautiful equipment that actually leaves nothing to be desired make the Saab an interesting offer.
If it weren't for the price. Almost € 20.000 is an ambitious idea. Too expensive? The assessment is in the eye of the beholder. A lot is happening on the annual car market for € 20.000. You get an Opel Astra sports tourer or Korean SUVs with virtually zero kilometers as a new car with a letter entry. But not a Saab.
Saab 900 2.0i 1997
The 900 II and 9-3 I are moving inexorably towards the classics. Appreciation increases, and so do prices. They are the last Saab with the classic hatchback, which was called a semi-station wagon at home. An import from Sweden in the condition of an annual car is offered in Leverkusen.
A basic Saab 900 2.0i. 131 HP must be enough, instead of leather beckoning contemporary velor. This is not bad, because it is enough for everyday life and classic enjoyment. In addition, the technology is robust, the 900 II is a late recommended year of manufacture. In combination with the exterior color, which could be midnight blue, the result is a harmonious picture.
The strength is the mileage and the resulting condition that could go in the direction of new cars. 14.600 kilometers, no rust. That could sting, because 900 II in good condition have become rare.
Yes, the price. 8.900 € are called and some Saab fans then fall into an automated “way too expensive”Mantra. At first glance, this may be true. Not in the second. There are cheaper offers, but not in the advertised condition. And a body builder for repairs is expensive, so the price asked should quickly be put into perspective.
