Saab 9-3 Reviews

Saab 93 Aero TTiD Long Term, we say goodbye

It has been a mixed bag with the Saab 93 Aero TTiD. Having driven a few Saabs, I knew I’d either hate this or love it from the first moment. To begin with I fell in love with the uniqueness of this Saab. The super comfortable seats and attractive exterior styling make it a desirable package, while the frugal engine ticks the economy and torque boxes...

2007 Saab 9-3 Linear Sport SportCombi Diesel TiD Road Test

If the noise wasn’t obvious enough, the massive sign-writing on either side of the car was sure to give it away. Saab have finally stepped out of their comfort zone and ventured into new technologies, creating vehicles powered by Diesel and 85% Ethanol. Inside, the new Diesel Saab 9-3 range is much the same as a regular 9-3, the difference lies in the drivetrain...

2006 Saab 9-3 SportCombi Linear Road Test

I was meant to go straight out of the Peugeot 307 Touring and straight into an auto 9-3 Saab Aero V6 Sedan. The auto Aero V6 was taken off the press fleet for an un-explained reason (this usually means that one of the journo’s broke it!). So instead, I was put into a 9-3 Linear SportCombi for just over two weeks. I guess you could call it our first ‘long-termer’...
