					The Saab

The Saab 9-3 is designed for driving exhilaration beyond the ordinary. Boosted by
the dynamic driving experience and a range of highly efficient turbo charged engines.

The Scandinavian
design approach.
It may be the climate. The light. Or even the fact that we share the same latitude as
Alaska. Whatever the reason, we tend to do things a little differently in Scandinavia.
And this difference speaks volumes in our design language. It’s uncomplicated,
consistent and every element has a purpose. Form follows function, giving you an
inspiring design. In fact, we don’t just design a car. We create a Saab.

Designed around you.
There’s no better proof of a car’s capabilities than putting it through its
paces on the road. So just get into a Saab 9-3 and discover the many ways
it’s designed to perform. Sense the way the car interacts with you along
the road. With instant power at hand and a chassis tuned for agile, sporty
handling. For a truly intense experience, try our innovative cross-wheel
drive system, Saab XWD™. There’ll be no looking back.

emission turbo diesels. With the Saab 9-3 TTiD SE
180PS and its low CO2 emissions of just 119g/km*,
you can enjoy the most powerful car on the road
with Zero VED for first year.

*119 g/km CO2 emissions relate to MY12 9-3 TTiD Saloon engines with manual transmission and excludes the 1.9TTiD (180 PS) Aero model.

Two turbos.

technology. You can count on agility, sportiness and amazing
response with a massive 400Nm of torque at your disposal,
allowing for swift overtaking.

Despite all the available power, the combined fuel

engine, this car demands to be driven. So get ready to tackle corners
with a new intensity. Firmly seated in a body-hugging sports seat. A
sensational experience. Every time.

Welcome to our safety lab.
Saab cars are frequently ranked among the best in the world in various safety
surveys. Yet our safety work is much more than award-winning. It focuses on
what actually happens on the road in real-life conditions. After all, our job is
to protect real people, not just dummies in a laboratory. This philosophy has
led to a range of safety innovations over the years. The most important result
of all, however, is the impressive safety of our cars. Out on the road.
