First Drive: 2008 Saab 9-3 Sport Sedan/SportCombi


2008 Saab 9-3 SportCombi.

Review and photos by Grant Yoxon

Washington, DC - Saab has introduced the 2008 9-3 Sport Sedan and SportCombi with revised exterior treatments inspired by its Aero-X concept car. Powertrain options remain the same, at least for now, with the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder in the base car and the 2.8-litre turbocharged six powering Aero models. This latter engine receives minor tweaking to improve horsepower by five to 255 hp. However, in the spring, Saab will introduce a 280-hp version of the 2.8-litre coupled with a new all-wheel drive system termed XWD (Cross Wheel Drive).

I saw this car driving towards Georgetown on my way to work and thought it was a MY08. I guess I was right. Should have flagged the guy down and made him take me to the press conference. :D

Good for Saab, not only recommended by CR now, but the XWD will set them apart.

If only they can improve the interior build quality and plastics.
