The Saab 9-3: Brochures

2000 Saab 9-3 Viggen (1) 2 3 4 5

Viggen 37 jet fighterIt is difficult to deny that some of us would really find pleasure in a car that works with the driver, reacts instantly to your input and allows you to really enjoy the open road. A car with exceptional engine characteristics and outstanding roadholding that just makes you want to keep on driving. Saab has created just the car — a limited series with a special name: the Saab 9-3 Viggen.

Having been a leading-edge developer of military aircraft for many years, it was logical for Saab to choose an aircraft name. The Saab 37 Viggen is one of the most uncompromising jet fighters ever built. It combines the ability to take off and land on extremely short runways, with Mach 2+ capabilities,

On a smaller scale, there are parallels between this and our new car. Our main goal was not to present impressive figures but to give you the best overall on-road behaviour possible. After a thorough test drive we believe you will share our opinion. The Saab 9-3 Viggen is a car that is very inspiring, and great fun to drive.

Body and Soul

Saab 9-3 ViggenAt a glance, the 9-3 Viggen resembles other Saab cars — and yet It doesn’t. It radiates even more stability and force, and the trained eye recognises that this car is built for a purpose.

The shape of the body is classic and an aerodynamic success. Spoilers and side skirts have little to do with decoration; they are carefully shaped to reduce lift forces and drag. Wheels and brakes, stance and profile are all statements about the intended usage. And under the bonnet you will find an upgraded turbocharger feeding the modified 2.3 litre engine.

The Saab 9-3 Viggen has been created for active, effective driving.
