Hell no, Volvo...safety and style. And Saabs basically look like sh!t IMHO. The new 247HP S60 will smoke a Saab and it looks awesome too.

if you want to show that you are a wimp/yuppie/nerd that wants to be, but can't, either will do

They each have models that have a lot going for them. Depends on what kind of statement you want to make.

nfs4 & shabby: Why not choose the 300 hp Volvo S60-R?
Volvo S60-R

(the reason I'll think SAAB rocks is because I rented a SAAB 9-3 with 205 hp. It was damn fast!!!! It kicked the hell out of our Volvo S40 2.0T (160hp). But when it comes to design the Volvo S40 kicks ass!!!! I like the orange-lights on the side. They look cool at night!!)

 

Both are pretty gross. Saabs are ugly and suffer from AWFUL torque-steer (especially the higher powered ones). They are not performance vehicles whatsoever, don't get one if you are want something even moderately sporty. Volvo's are the "safest cars on the planet." I guess they're ok:)

*drool* that s60-r looks badass. Wonder how much it'll cost, the audi s4 costs 59k here in canada and the s60 T5 costs 44k. Maybe if it'll cost around 50k that'd be sweet. Hope they put awd in it :D

Uh...need I remind you of the late and great Volvo 850R? 0-60 in under 6 seconds, quarter mile just under 15 seconds, and a rip snorting 150mph+ top end. All yours for $18,000 for a mint condition car. The S60R looks even better! Manual Volvo...mmmm:)

Saab? Bah...only the 9000 AERO and the new 9-5 are good. BAH!
