Saab has a new Norwegian part-owner (well, they will soon).
The Saab 9-3x is a candidate in a car of the year poll in Norway.
I think one is closely enough connected to the other to justify a vote, don’t you?
If you’d rather see shiny new Saabs on Norwegian streets instead of rusted Saab 96s on the Norwegian coast, then give the Saab 9-3x a hand in this Dagbladet car of 2009 poll and get the editors thinking about The Saab a little more seriously.
Aside from the fact that it’s a Saab, it’s just a darn good vehicle and a great player in that alt-SUV niche.
As of a couple of hours ago, the top 10 standings were as follows:
- Audi A5 Sportback (1285)
- Mercedes E-Klasse (424)
- Toyota Prius ( 373)
- Mazda 3 (373)
- Skoda Yeti ( 354)
- Saab 9-3X (348)
- Opel Insignia (343)
- BMW X1 ( 323)
- Peugeot 3008 (275)
- VW Polo ( 204)
It shouldn’t be too hard for the 9-3x to muster a respectable second place from there (and let’s face it, the opel Insignia is just too close for comfort!)
