Few production techniques are as hated as badge engineering, when you make one car into two (or more, usually more) cars by tweaking the grille or headlamps and maybe adding some luxury touches. But every now and then, it actually works.
That's our question of the day — what's the best example of badge engineering?
I humbly submit the Saab 9-2X from that period in the 2000s when GM owned Saab and had a stake in Subaru. You got a WRX wagon with a fairly attractive front end, an improved interior, and a badge that's actually appropriate considering Saab and Subaru's shared heritage of rallying and quirkiness. It shouldn't be awesome, but it is!
Your turn. What example of badge engineering created true greatness?
