Saab has redesigned its 9-3 range citing its Aero X concept car as the main inspiration for the new look.
Jan Ake Jonsson, managing director of Saab, said: “We are introducing significant developments across three key areas: design, performance and handling.
“The result is a major step forward in strengthening the visual and driving appeal of our core product line-up, which accounts for about two-thirds of global sales.”
The new 9-3 range comprises Sport Saloon, SportWagon and Convertible models, all available with petrol, diesel or BioPower (bioethanol E85) engine variants.
Available in four forms in the UK, Airflow, Linear SE, Vector Sport and Aero, the first cars will be delivered to the UK in the autumn. More details will be announced closer to launch.
