2007 Saab 9-3 Overview

The 2007 Saab 9-3 looks essentially the same as it did last year, but some changes have been made as far as standard equipment and available features. There's also a new color selection, Titan Grey Metallic.

The biggest change comes in the cockpit, as the "Born from Jets" company likes to say. The instrument cluster is now larger, yet it has nonetheless been streamlined to maximize efficiency (for instance, dials replace buttons on the climate control).

Saab has consciously worked to enhance the driver's enjoyment behind the wheel, and this includes their choice of a somewhat wrap-around instrument panel that in a way becomes one with the pilot - er, driver - and almost lets him pretend he's up among the clouds. A green light illuminates the gauges, but the brightness can be controlled with the Night Panel switch.

They have also worked on improving the 9-3's handling, which was by no means terrible but now is a bit better according to several reviewers, some of whom also made note of the car's comfortable seats (although Saab probably won't knock Volvo out of top-running for its reputation in this category).

A new standard feature is the automatic dual-zone climate control, which is becoming de rigueur on today's European-branded cars. On the higher-priced Aero trim, a 6-speed automatic transmission replaces the 5-speed, upping fuel efficiency a tad. New options consist of a Bose audio system, the OnStar Safety and Security System, red walnut interior trim, and upgraded wheels.

Safety equipment on the 9-3 sedan wants for nothing, as the roster ranges from an electronic stability system with ABS and electronic brake-force distribution to a full complement of airbags (including side-impact and side-curtain units) and Active Head Restraints. Interior space is sufficient, although the backseat is cramped for adults. The trunk's capacity is 14.8 cubic feet.
