So which car do you guys think performs better overall? The 2002 GTI 1.8T or the 2002 Saab 9-3 SE? Both are FWD turbos with the GTI having 180hp and the Saab 205hp. Both are practical cars with big hatchbacks and with sport suspensions. Both appear to be great buys at their respective price ranges (Saab essentially dropped the price of the 9-3 SE by $5,000 for 2002 vs. 2001).
