As @rjluna said, MY 1968 only due to the bigger windscreen but old long-nose front. Marketed as simply SAAB 96.

I was wondering about that, too. AFAIK they were only named 96, and nothing else. I just followed the way the others are listed

Because it's a later one, I think the earlier ones were called Sedan, and later ones were called 96. I think it's a mess. Some clarification would be quite welcome.

:think: So in Norway really a typical US-term was used? I thought, this word is unknown outside the USA?
In Germany there are some streets named "Sedanstraße", but this has nothing do do with cars, it's about 1870: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sedan,_Ardennes
(one of the street names, which give a strong hint about the average age of itself and the buildings along there)

AFAIK first called SAAB 96, the wagon version simply SAAB 95 (+ trim level). When the V4 came it was sold in parallel with the oilburner for a couple of years, they therefore marketed the V4 version of both 96 and 95 as V4 during this period. Later they reverted to 96 and 95. The badge remained.

@ingo: Yes by all means Sedan is a well known term for a two or four door Personbil (PKW in German :D ) but not commonly used for the variants that are only made as sedan, such as Typ 1 or the 96 here.

@tore-40: "PKW" (Personenkraftwagen) is for all types of passenger-cars, incl.Cabriolets and Estates/Wagons.
"Limousine" are named cars, which aren't Estates or Cabriolets, even divided in "Stufenheck-Limousine" (Sedan) and "Schrägheck-Limousine" (Hatchback plus few odd exceptions as the Lancia Beta and the early Fiat 127 and VW Passat. The have a Schrägheck, but aren't Hatchbacks).
The common German term for Estates/Wagon is "Kombi". Often people, who are used to drive VW's say also "Variant" -to non-VW's, too-, same with longtime Opel-owners, who say "Caravan" to any Estate.
The term Convertible is unknown, we say "Cabriolet" or "Cabrio". The term "Kabriolett" is outdated since the early 50ies.

@ingo: I get your point. I was a little to diffuse about the term Personbil but it is used officially in the same manner here, describing cars that are not Varebil (Van or rebuilt with cargo room or bigger Lastebil (over 3,5 tons) or buses. See for instance: https://www.facebook.com/volvocarsno?v=wall&viewas=0 or http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personbil

It gets worse: You can also use Personbil to describe the sedan http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sedan_(bil) (The sketch doesn't match the text) compared to Stasjonsvogn http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stasjonsvogn , Kombi http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kombi_(bil) or other variants. See listing of car types in this ad (bottom line): http://atbbil.stryneelva.com/onskes_kjopt.php

On this basis I would have named the 96's Personbil (if the 96 needs any more description) but Sedan is the common term on this site. Many Norwegian cars are anyway listed without Sedan if not a different type.

Bottom line: 96 V4 or 95 V4 should be the Norwegian designations.
