Overview Information

The 9-3 is an appealing compact sedan, with sleek styling and relatively affordable pricing. The model range starts with a 210-bhp turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder powered front-wheel drive 2.0T model with optional XWD (all-wheel-drive). All models offer a choice of manual and automatic transmissions. Value-conscious customers will prefer the base 2.0T due to its significantly lower price.

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.
