Special features for 2011

Saab is introducing all-wheel drive across its model lineup, and it certainly increases the desirability of the 9-3 sedan. The Saab 9-3 has very unique design and styling details when compared to other sport-sedan models, as well as a perky yet efficient turbo 4-cylinder engine. Steering and handling are also strong features of the 9-3. Finally, the 9-3 Convertible is an unusually strong entry in its segment today, with real seating space in back and a tight, quiet cabin setup.
The 2011 Saab 9-3 is a FWD entry-luxury car available in sedan, convertible, and wagon trim levels. All 9-3 trim levels are powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 210 hp and come standard with a six-speed manual transmission with 5-speed/6-speed automatic transmissions and advanced cross-wheel-drive as available options. The 9-3 gets an EPA estimated range of 17 mpg city to 31 mpg highway, depending on engine and transmission selection. Options include 18-inch alloy wheels, xenon cornering headlamps, carbon-fiber trim, leather-appointed sport seats, 6-disc CD changer, navigation, power moonroof, and heated front seats. Safety features are comprised of traction control, electronic stability program, anti-lock braking, electronic brake-force distribution, and adaptive front/passenger airbags. The 9-3 is covered by a 4-year/50,000-mile limited warranty.
