Re: 850 Wagon - General Comparison Specs?
Ok, I've driven the 850 Turbo, which seems peppy like I like it, and
an 850GLE which was pretty weak... a real A-to-B car with little in
between. I'm amazed at how similar the interior dimensions are to the
240, much roomier than the 760.
Is there reason to expect a 940 NA to perform any better than the NA
850, since it too has a 4-cylinder engine?
