Saab in China
 
Since Volvo sells car in China, I figured that the other major Swedish car manufacturer, Saab does as well. and they do. But placing this thread has been a problem. Saab is owned by General Motors who is trying to sell Saab off. So I don't know where to place this thread so I decided to place it under the 'Other' forum since the GM forum mentioned nothing about Saab.

Saab sells three models: 9-3, 9-5 and Turbo X.

The 9-3 comes in Sport Sedan, Convertible or Sporthatch forms.
Prices:
Sport Sedan: RMB349,000 for baseline Linear trim to RMB529,000 for top spec Aero trim.

Saab also sells a high performance model called the Turbo X, which is based on the 9-3 sports sedan.

It can come as a wagon and with Saab's "Crosswheel Drive"system. Also, the Turbo X can come in the 9-5 guise as well.

This is good news because Saab can now develop truely Swedish cars, rather than relying on GM handouts. I'll have some interior pics on soon.

It looks like Geely will buy Saab as Chery is entering the bidding to buy Volvo.
I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. But then again, info from China Car Times says Geely will be buying Volvo and that Chery could be getting Saab.

I'm so confused. :confused:

volvo and saab are icons of the industry, they are not hyundai, kia or opel...

Although I do think that both Kia and Hyundai have a lot more to offer than Saab or Volvo, in terms of practical automotive value.
