There are two trim levels – the 2.0T that features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 210 horsepower linked to a five-speed manual transmission standard (with a five-speed automatic as an option), or the Aero the offers a 2.8-liter V6 that produces 250 horsepower linked to a six-speed manual transmission (with a six-speed automatic as an option).Read more Read less
The Saab 9-3 family gets a restyled interior for 2007, with a new instrument panel, revised trim, and a sportier theme throughout. GM's OnStar communications and roadside assistance service is now optional, and XM satellite radio is now standard on upscale Aero models (optional on 2.0T). The top Bose sound system, previously only available on the Aero, is now optional on the 2.0T Sport. Also, a six-speed manual transmission replaces the five-speed as standard on the 2.0T model. Four new exterior colors join the lineup: Electric Blue metallic, Smoke Beige metallic, and Arctic White for the Convertible (along with a new tan top), and Titan Grey metallic for the Sport Sedan and SportCombi models. The 9-3 is due for a more extensive redesign for 2008.
Terrific ride and handling; sporty interior design; voluminous cargo space (SportCombi).
Saab's 2007 9-3 lineup includes sporty sedans, wagons, and convertibles with either four-cylinder or V6 turbocharged engines and a wide range of equipment. All 9-3 models carry an emphasis on performance and stand out for their excellent handling stability while keeping a good ride. The wagon model, called SportCombi, with its sport-wagon silhouette and flashy LED taillamps, remains an especially attractive alternative to sport-utility vehicles.
