IDK. I kinda like it. But I like it in the same manner that I like the X6...its a look, but don't touch liking.

Interior is nice looking, I bet it's comfortable and all that but I don't get a good feeling about the exterior. When I saw the E90, E92, E60, 6-series and X6 I immediately loved the exterior look. I get the feeling that this car doesn't know what it's supposed to be...

As a suburban homeowner, the idea of a great road car with the space to act as a utility vehicle has some appeal. The combination of sportiness and cargo space is part of what made SAAB so successful in the '80's.

I'm not sure I'd haul grass clippings to the dump in my $70,000 GT with twin turbo V8, but maybe if it was in the $50,000 area with a diesel it would have the kind of reverse snob appeal that made SAAB an icon.

It actualy looks better and better to me every time I see it. If I had to get a station wagon for utilitarian reasons, I would definitly choose this over anything else in the market today

I don like it at all. . I have an open mind and don't mind change, but this thing looks hideous in every spyshot I have seen.

Jeez call me crazy but I think it looks really good. The more real-life pictures I see of it, the more i really start to like it (a lot). I think its going to be like the new 7 series: it looks ok/good in pictures but looks awesome in person.

The more I see it the more I like it. Seeing it next to other vehicles gives it scale and makes the rear end a lot more palatable.

this car looks abs. awful. why they would make this is such a surprise to me. i get they want to compete w/the cls and cc but they don't have too. i feel like they fell into trend following category w/this one. but its the ugliest of them all.

I completly disagreed with you. The 1er isn't very photogenic either, but a lot of people seem to like it in person (me included).

It looks like some kind of hybrid. Maybe they'll incorporate some kind of intense efficent dyanamic to it. I'm probably wrong though, and the car will be a fugly flop

the idrive button sems a bit far away, it's more like it's for the passenger to play with. and for the car itself, i'm feeling the front, but i'm not feeling the rear.
