Overview

Saab 9-3 lets drivers experience the excitement of turbocharged front-wheel drive, but helps them manage it with traction control and sophisticated engine management. It's offered in three-door, five-door, and convertible models. Saab cars have been lauded for their innovation ever since the first Saab 92 was unveiled in 1947. Designed by aircraft engineers, they quickly attracted attention with their aerodynamic styling. Some consider them quirky. This latest generation of Saabs is far more mainstream than Saabs of past, but it preserves that special character that makes a Saab. The ignition key is still mounted on the center console; a modern version of the Black Panel instrument cluster remains; and innovative solutions to mirrors and the ventilation system can be found on the 9-3. The name, 9-3 (pronounced "nine-three"), traces its roots to Saab's aviation heritage. The 9-3 is the successor to the long-lived Saab 900, a car that practically became a legend among its followers for its turbocharger and front-wheel drive.
