Some car companies are described as mainstream or luxurious; for Saab, the term might be quirky. Maybe it was the brand's Swedish heritage - or the whole "Born From Jets" theme - but more than likely, Saab stands alone because of features like swiveling air vents and an ignition placed between the front seats.
The quirkiness may've been blunted when GM took over, but the brand managed to (mostly) maintain its unique appearance. The Saab 9-3 Sport Sedan shared architecture with cars such as the Chevrolet Malibu. The Saab 9-3 SportCombi was essentially a wagon variant of the brand's entry-level sedan. Buyers drawn to the look and feel of the 9-3 who wanted a larger vehicle could look at the Saab 9-5.
In an effort to broaden the brand's lineup, General Motors added a couple of new vehicles like the Saab 9-2X, the Saab 9-4X and the Chevrolet Trailblazer-based Saab 9-7X SUV. Still, Saab stopped selling new cars in the United States with the 2011 model year.
