Overview Information

The 9-3 is available as a stylish convertible, which seems to be especially appealing for its combination of 4-seat practicality and compact size. A turbocharged 210-bhp 2.0L I-4 is standard. Transmission choices include a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic. Value-conscious customers will prefer the base 2.0T Convertible due to its significantly lower price. The 9-3 Aero Convertible does have a sport suspension, two-tone leather seats, and 17-inch alloy wheels, but at a significant price premium.

Official Word:

Fresh from the major exterior redesign it received for the 2008 model year, the Saab 9-3 range broadens its customer appeal for 2009 with available XWD cross-wheel-drive technology on 2.0T Sport Sedan and SportCombi models, a more powerful, 280-horsepower (209 kW) engine on all V-6 Aero models, and a new, available Aero-look exterior appearance package for 2.0T Sport models. Other enhancements include interior trim, roof rail and wheel changes, as well as new, standard OnStar 8.0...Read.
