About Saab 9-3

With its trademark Saab styling, room for four persons and a power-operated soft-top, the 2010 Saab 9-3 Convertible is a favorite with sun worshipers and Saab enthusiasts everywhere. Compared to the first few generation Saab convertibles, the newest 9-3 is far more rigid, far more reliable and a fair bit quicker. The 9-3's upswept beltline creates a tall trunk that allows for plenty of luggage even when the top is retracted, and the choice between base or Aero trim – both powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine – means no matter which model you choose, sluggish acceleration will never be an issue.
