SAAB is not just resting on its history of having designed jets, it operates as if it were designing them today. Consider the degree of precision and attention to detail one needs to create the jet fighter aircraft the "SAAB Gryphon." SAAB maintains the same level of precision and durability in their automobiles as they do in their jets.
SAAB's first V8 is introduced in the 9-7X, a new addition to its lineup. Dropped onto an American truck platform, the 9-7X is solid and good-looking, with plenty of luxury and safety innovations. A comfortable, well-configured SUV, the SAAB 9-7X has plenty of what the SUV-prone buying public is looking for.
Available as a sport sedan, convertible, or a sport wagon, the SAAB 9-3 will give many folks exactly what they want no matter which body style they need. The SAAB 9-3 has a new V6 engine and remains firmly ensconced in its aircraft engineering paradigm. You only need a quick fly-through the cockpit to recognize numerous aircraft-inspired touches that are more functional that for appearances.
In an effort to capture a segment of the cay-buying public previously untapped, SAAB has introduced the SAAB 9-2X, a low-cost sport model that SAAB believes will entice people to make the move to their neighborhood. Although smaller and more compact than other models, settling into the 9-2X one immediately gets in sync with all they expect from a SAAB. There are plenty of standard safety features, such as front airbags and seat tensioners, to make anyone feel safe and at home.
2011 Saab 9-3
It's never good to start a review by saying, don't go there, but that's the best advice with the 2011 Saab 9-3. The upscale small car market is highly competitive. This is simply a case of everyone else does it better. The Saab has an out-of-date interior, a high price at the base level, and offers only decent performance. Your money will be better spent elsewhere. The 9-3 opens at $28,900 and sells for $45,080 on the high end. (Fuel economy is 21 city and 31 highway.).
There are a lot of other cars to consider. The Volkswagen GTI is more comfortable with better room in the cabin, and 15.3 cubic feet in the trunk. It also opens at $24,000. If you want better performance and can manage $31,000, take a look at the BMW 1-series, which has a 3.0-liter V6. Go with the Volkswagen EOS, and you get a retractable hardtop and interior quality so high there's standard Bluetooth and an iPod connector.
The Saab 9-3 is offered as a sedan, soft-top convertible, and a Sport Combi (wagon). All come with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine paired to a manual transmission (an automatic transmission is optional). more
