Had a Fiat Croma CHT and a Saab 9000, both type 4 cars: The Fiat was very nimble to drive with quik steering response, but did not have the straight line stability of the Saab. Suspension components are completely different. The Saab is also more substantial: Fiat Croma CHT - 1100 Kg. Saab 9000 CSE - 1400 Kg. This shows in the sound of closing doors, Fiat: "clang", Saab: "wuup".
