FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
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
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. For more new car reviews, interviews and automotive news

Crash Test 2003 - 2009 Saab 9-3 (Frontal Offset Test) IIHS
2009 Top Safety Pick 2009 Saab 9-3 (4-door sedan and wagon models): good
performance in front, side, and rear tests and standard electronic
FRONTAL OFFSET TEST
OVERALL EVALUATION: Good
Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics
Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right
Good Good Good Good Good Good
Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles
of similar weight.
The Saab 9-3 was redesigned for the 2003 model year.
The frontal offset crash test ratings also apply to the station wagon
version of the 9-3, known as the SportCombi, beginning with its
introduction in the 2006 model year.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement was well controlled. The
side curtain airbags deployed, as intended by Saab (even for frontal
impacts). After the dummy moved forward into the frontal airbag, its head
brushed the side airbag and its fabric cover. The dummy continued to
rebound into the seat without its head coming close to any stiff structure
that could cause injury.
Injury measures — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of
any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.
