Saab 9000

If your commuting classic needs to be a large saloon or hatchback that at weekends will offer commodious family transport, then why not consider the 1984-98 Saab 9000 – a car that can be snapped up now for less than a grand, with even the very best examples struggling to get anywhere near £2000.

This sister car to the Fiat Croma, Lancia Thema and Alfa Romeo 164 (the Italian trio with which the big Saab shared its platform) is comfortable and durable. And you get a choice of four-cylinder (turbo and non-turbo) or V6 power – all for so little cash!
