volvo v50 t5 awd<br>saab 9-3 aero sport-combi<br>audi a3 3.2<p>i'm looking for something that's fun to drive, but is at least somewhat practical (more practical than my audi tt) -- i.e., my daughter and a friend can sit in the back seat, i can put a couple of golf bags in the back, maybe put a kayak or a bike on top...you get the idea. but it's got to be fun to drive!<p>anyway, i've read all of the literature from volvo, saab, and audi on these cars and read lots of reviews on cars.com, edmonds, kbb, car and driver, etc.<p>but what do y'all think? what are the strong and weak points of these cars (if you've driven 2 or 3 of them -- or just the v50 if that's all you have experience with).<p>also, is the nav unit in the v50 worth getting, or would i be better off getting an aftermarket unit (garmin, etc.) -- and is satellite radio (specifically xm) offered? i haven't seen it in the literature.<p>thanks very much for your thoughts. i hope to visit my volvo dealer this weekend, and drive one.
