2008 Saab 9-3 Facelift: Officially Official – Press Release Included

We saw every single version uncamouflaged, we saw official renderings, we even saw press pictures; about time for Saab to come out with the “officially” official images and press release, don’t you think? Better keep your pants on though cause like the pictures, the press release is nothing more than a teaser, revealing what we already know or can see for ourselves: redesigned front end inspired from the Aero X concept, sales start this August. No word on the interior or the 290 Hp 2.8 V6 Turbo AWD version that’ll go on sale next spring but we suspect that Saab will give more info and pictures on the 2008 9-3 in the upcoming weeks. –Click “Read More…” to check out the press release

New Saab 9-3 Range: Sharper Looks Showcase Enhanced Performance

The new Saab 9-3 range will feature bold styling, inspired by the award-winning Aero X concept car, backed by cutting edge technology for greater driving appeal. .

With all-new front bodywork, ‘signature’ lighting, new door panels and rear styling features, the latest generation 9-3 acquires a more focused, assertive stance, reflecting the introduction of technical advances aimed at delivering an even more rewarding experience behind the wheel.

Most noticeable is the sharper frontal styling, which adopts grille and hood themes first seen on the Aero X concept, together with a return of Saab’s classic ‘clamshell’ design. This new ‘face’ is reinforced by other exterior changes that all combine to give the range a clearer, more distinctive Saab identity.

“We are introducing significant developments across three key areas: design, performance and handling,” says Jan Åke Jonsson, Managing Director of Saab Automobile. “The result is a major step forward in strengthening the visual and driving appeal of our core product line-up, which accounts for about two-thirds of global sales.”

The new 9-3 range comprises Sport Sedan, SportCombi and Convertible models, each offering a unique ‘tri-fuel’ engine choice of gasoline, diesel or BioPower (E85). Available in three forms, Linear, Vector and Aero, the range goes on sale from August.
