The Linear trim is new for 2003, and this model is slatted as the entry level 9-3 sedan. The Linear houses the most modest of all 9-3 power plants: a turbocharged 2.0 liter four which makes 175 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. Buyers may choose between a five-speed manual or an optional five-speed automatic transmission. Standard features include keyless entry, heated mirrors, full power accessories, a trip computer, cruise control, OnStar, steering wheel audio controls and a CD player. The Linear has a more luxurious presentation than any of the previous entry level 9-3 sedans, due to the inclusion of leather upholstery, and leather trim on the steering wheel and shifter.
Safety equipment includes ABS, traction control, stability control, front and rear head airbags and daytime running lights.
Adds to Linear:
No additional major features.
