Saab 900

Forget about the hugely successful 900 Convertible (do you really want a ragtop for the winter?) and focus instead on the saloon and hatch. Launched in 1978 and enjoying a 15-year career, the original 900 is highly respected by Saab aficionados – and, in turbocharged guise, something of an icon.

You might struggle to find a 900 Turbo for our £1500 budget (or at least one capable of immediately offering reliable, hassle-free transport). But normally-aspirated 900s are out there at this price; buy the best you can, and then enjoy a car built for Swedish winters!
