The Linear Convertible is a new addition to the 9-3 lineup this year, offering prospective buyers with a more affordable route to owning this entry-level Swedish luxury car.
This convertible is similarly equipped to the Linear sedan, but a few additional items are included here. Both are powered by a less powerful variation of Saab's 2.0 liter inline, which generates 175 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. Standard features include full power accessories, cruise control, automatic climate control, a power roof and steering wheel audio controls. The convertible also comes with vinyl seats instead of leather.
