Haven't we heard that one before? Saab seems to think that an estate will keep us happy. No it won't. The hatch looks prettier and sportier, whereas the estate looks like a tradesman's car. Estate cars are engineered for heavy duty loads with weight and suspension penalties. OK, if you need to carry the load, but load and bulk is not necessarily the same. Johannes
