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.

Saab has survived a near-death experience--for now. Cut loose from the GM empire, it's been acquired by Dutch supercar builder Spyker, and it's revived its American operations behind a new 2010 Saab 9-5 and the carryover car here, the 2010 Saab 9-3.

The 9-3 is a roomy compact model that borders on mid-size, despite the fact that it's now the smallest model in the company's lineup. The 9-3 comes in sedan and versatile wagon (SportCombi) body styles, as well as a convertible

The 9-3 comes in two models: base and Aero. A 210-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine propels the base model, while the high-performance Aero model gets a 280-hp, 2.8-liter turbocharged V-6 engine. At the top of the range is the Turbo X model, which brings a stronger, 280-hp version of the turbo V-6 and an all-wheel-drive system.

Both models come with a six-speed manual transmission, with an automatic transmission optional on each: five-speed for the base, six-speed for the Aero.

Last year, Saab made its XWD all-wheel-drive system is optional on 2.0T models.

We're awaiting a test drive of the updated 2010 Saab 9-3, which is expected to have few changes from the prior version. Until then, read a review of the 2009 Saab 9-3 lineup.
