2008 Saab 9-3 SportCombi

Drivers attracted to Saab's clean, Scandinavian design sense, but seeking the functionality and space of a family wagon, can opt for the Saab 9-3 SportCombi, which receives a design refresh for 2008. Drawing inspiration from the Aero X concept car, which debuted in 2006, Saab gave the 2008 9-3 SportCombi a more streamlined, aerodynamic appearance, which is especially noticeable in the vehicle's nose.

Exterior enhancements for 2008 include a deeper, more prominent grille that dips further down into the SportCombi's bumper, Nordic iceblock-inspired taillights, and a sleeker overwrap (raised) hood. Saab has also redesigned the SportCombi's front lower fascia, as well as the housings for the foglights, to give the car a more aggressive appearance.

Saab also added a number of new standard features to the 9-3 SportCombi package for 2008, including a tire-pressure monitoring system, rain-sensing windshield wipers, XM satellite radio, a year of OnStar, and 16-inch, 14-spoke alloy wheels.

In addition, Saab debuts an electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system, called XWD, or cross-wheel drive, which will be available as an option starting in early 2008. The XWD system, which can send full power to either the front or rear axle, or a combination of both, greatly improves the SportCombi's handling and traction, according to reviewers and test drivers.

The 2008 Saab 9-3 SportCombi is available in two trims. The 2.0T comes equipped with a fuel-efficient, 207-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, while the Aero features a 252-horsepower, 2.8-liter turbocharged V6.

The SportCombi's leather-appointed seats are especially comfortable, reviewers have noted, and luxury interior amenities are extensive. In addition, the SportCombi provides 30 cubic feet of cargo space with the back seat upright, and up to 72 cubic feet of space with the back seat folded flat.
