I take offense at the elitist comment below. As was pointed out, driving in the US as opposed to Europe are vastly different. What saab has done is not yet spent design effort to adapt this car to the current tastes in the US. I agree that they are definitely trying to get a larger market and watering down the scandinavian design from the cars to appeal to a broader (lcd?) market. Better cup holders are only a matter of time. This is GM and will continue until it looks and acts like a Lexus.
