SAAB Wagon Reviews

With a long history in aircraft design, it is no surprise that many of the early Saab vehicles had a touch of those same designs in them. Began in 1937 as a company that would build aircraft for the Swedish Air Force, Saab did not venture into passenger cars until 1947. This was the year they would unveil the first vehicle, the Saab 92. It would be released for sale to the public in 1949 and would bring recognition to the company and the brand. Every Saab wagon, coupe and convertible is easily recognized by virtually anyone who sees it.

Over the years Saab has had varied ownership. Companies such as Spyker Cars and General Motors have taken their turn at the helm of the automotive group. Both were head of the company during times that popular vehicles were produced. Neither still owns the company. In fact, Saab has been struggling for quite some time. That said, it is expected that the company will resolve their issues and come back strong into the market. In the meantime, they are one of few companies that still produce a wagon version of their automobiles. The Saab wagon is among one of their most popular choices and there have been many to select from over the years.

The first Saab Wagon that was produced was the Saab 95. It began as a two door wagon that would seat seven people. It started with a design very similar to the Saab 93, but over the years it would follow the upgrades and improvements of the Saab 96. It technically was first produced in 1959, but there were so few that were made that most people do not consider the line beginning until 1960. This car was used in rallying quite often due to its power and light weight. It began as a 3 cylinder two stroke engine but went to four strokes in 1967. The rear facing folding seat that occupied two was dropped from the vehicle in 1976 so that it became a way to seat 5 people only. Production stopped altogether in 1978.

Another popular car, the Saab 9-3, had a wagon version as well. When the second generation of the 9-3 was introduced in 2005, the company would include a four door wagon. This was most often referred to as the SportCombi or Sport Wagon. It boasted a 2.0 Liter straight 4 engine. A completely distinct interior filled comfortable seats and plenty of cargo space has made this vehicle appealing, but when looking the competition the Saab wagon just doesn't measure up.

In 1997 the company would introduce yet another Saab wagon. The five door version of the Saab 9-5 carried a four speed automatic transmission until 2001 when it was replaced with a manual transmission with five speeds. The wagon was produced until 2010 and like most Saabs it would boast plenty of safety features as that remained a top priority with the company.
