The mid-size 9-3 is the sportiest model to be built off of General Motors' global "Epsilon" platform, which also provides the underpinnings for the Chevrolet Malibu and the new-for-2005 Pontiac G6. Still, the 9-3 carries Saab-exclusive styling and preserves such traditional quirks as the ignition key being located on the floor between the two front seats. The car comes in three trim levels: The base Linear, luxurious Arc and sporty Vector editions get a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that generates either 175 or 210 horsepower, depending on the model. A five-speed-manual transmission is standard on the Linear and Arc versions, while a six-speed manual gearbox comes with the Vector. A DVD-based navigation system is available for the first time on 2005 models, along with several newly offered exterior colors.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
