Thank you for your compliment, since you are implying a classic 900 or 9000 holds as much as a 747 cargo conversion. This is not true, but you also believe it is totally unfair to compare the cargo capacity of a classic 900 or 9000 to the 9-3, which may be true. Malcom and others have used a classic 900 as a camper, but I would suspect the 9-3 is also capable of sleeping two adults in the back as well. The minimal lip(liftover) at the floor of the back of a car may not be a big thing if you are young and have a healthy back, but why does Saab make such a big thing over this "design feature" in the 9-5 wagon? You have to pay the extra money for the 9-5 wagon when this "design feature" was standard in the classic Saabs. My back is not as strong as it used to be so I got an old classic hatchback to use as a cargo hauler - because it has no lip in the back.
