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.

Saab takes a calculated approach with its striking new 9-3 Vector sport sedan.

A car that does everything right and nothing wrong. This car is a true 4 season car. Great road car too and has been on several multi state outings. Always plenty of room for our bags and things acquired. Yes... + More »
