Saab 9-3 Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT: http://www.kbb.com/KBB/NewCars/Saab_9-3.aspx Saab 9-3. Beyond meatballs and home-assembled furniture, Sweden is also known as the home of Saab cars, a brand that has prided itself on being different. So for those who think Audis and BMWs are all too common on Americas roadways, the Saab 9-3 offers a quirkier sports-luxury alternative. Welcome to our comprehensive Kelley Blue Book review of the Saab 9-3. Styling advances at Saab tend to be evolutionary, but take our word for it; in addition to a host of interior and performance upgrades, the exterior of the latest 9-3 has received more than a freshening. And Saab loyalists can take heart that funky details like the signature center-mounted ignition remain on the 9-3.

Saab 9-3 Aero Carlsson
My dad had the opportunity to appraise the limited edition Saab 9-3 Aero Carlsson during the week starting 17-Jan-2011. This is the first car from the limited edition of 96 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Erik Carlsson's first RAC rally win in a Saab 96. This video is not a review and does the car no justice, though we thought it a worthwhile last hour to have spent with the car. The intention is to try and share what will one day become something of a collectable, a point already proven by a BMW driver who tailgated us so he could record the car over on his phone. Unfortunately for me it was during a week of exams, which being both an engineering student and the owner of a 6 year old Saab 9-3, I can honestly say I have never had such a valid reason to procrastinate. Just be sure to turn the volume up to max.!

Saab 9-3 Vector 1.9 TiDS Steptronic Full Review,Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
The front-wheel-drive 9-3 does not feel state of the art from behind the wheel. It was facelifted in 2007, but as the company points out the 9-3 has a five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating, there really was no need to change its underpinnings. However, although it is comfortable enough, there's no disputing the fact that rivals offer great handling and better body control. Mechanically though, there is a highlight -- the twin-turbo 1.9-litre TTiD. The smaller turbocharger minimises lag and provides great throttle response, while the larger one helps it produce 400Nm and 178bhp. It's smoother than the single-turbo 1.9-litre TiD, but can still get raucous when pushed hard. As with all Saabs, the manual gearshift is rubbery, too. The four-cylinder petrol alternatives are feeling their age now, but the 2.8-litre V6 turbo is an impressive performer. Marketplace The facelifted 9-3 is very much of the nip and tuck variety. The biggest changes came at the front, with a distinctive eyebrow light across the top of the main lamp. Elsewhere, there's a cleaner look, and the new 'ice-white' tail lamps are stylish. Offered in saloon and Sport Wagon estate guises, the Saab offers a less expensive premium alternative to a BMW 3-Series or Audi A3. A line-up of fleet-focused Airflow, Linear SE and Vector Sport models are easy to follow, but while there's a large range of engines, it's the TiD 120 and 150 units that sell most strongly. Owning A new interior in 2006 still didn't raise quality levels to the standards of rivals, and while it did reduce the button-count, some of the switchgear still appears dated. The soft seats offer excellent long-distance comfort though, and ergonomically, the safe Saab is intuitive to use. Furthermore, while rear legroom is not particularly generous, the saloon's boot is decent and the Sport Wagon's cargo area is well thought out. Cleverly, the middle section of the floor can be folded upwards and used to prevent shopping bags from sliding around. Equipment levels also impress, and the 1.9-litre diesel variants prove economical -- more so than the slightly thirsty petrol units. Where the Saab's sub-premium status shows is in retained values, though. They're simply not as good as those of its German competitors. With so many entry-level luxury car choices from Germany, Japan and America, it's easy to overlook the Swedish Saab 9-3. But the truth is, the Saab 9-3 could be a great match for buyers looking for a spacious, safe and comfortable automobile with a proven safety record and a distinctly modern attitude. Today's 9-3 lineup is the latest in Saab's long line of near-luxury cars dating back to the 1970s. Offered in a variety of body styles, with abundant cargo space and frugal yet powerful engines, it has always represented a competitively priced, character-laden alternative to the me-too near-luxury offerings from other manufacturers. Though the unique and practical 9-3 hatchbacks were discontinued after the 2002 model year, the 9-3 family continues to be offered in multiple body styles: a four-door sedan, two-door convertible and four-door wagon, the latter called "SportCombi." All utilize small-displacement, turbocharged engines that extract big power while salvaging respectable fuel economy. Recent examples have been made available with V6s as a step up from one of Saab's traditionally lively four-cylinders. Furthermore, the Saab 9-3 tends to be priced aggressively, at least in sedan and wagon form. Convertible models have always been a bit less of a bargain. Among the Saab 9-3's chief shortcomings are its lower performance thresholds and somewhat cut-rate interior in comparison with German and Japanese competitors. Still, it remains a good bet for near-luxury car shoppers seeking something different in a class of look-alikes.Today's Saab 9-3 is sold in three body styles: sedan, SportCombi wagon and convertible. Sedan and SportCombi models feel spacious, with low floors, upright windows and seating for five, though three in the rear seat can be tight. Legroom in particular is a sore spot. Convertible models have a rear seat for two adults of small-to-average size. Cargo room in all models is generous.
