DEBUT: 2008 SAAB 9-3 Lineup

Recommended Posts

I love it...but I'm not sure which I love more...used to be the saloon, but the SportCombi looks awesome...especially in black.

But I sure love those new Saab looks now I like the 9-3 as much as the 9-5 trust me I like the 9-5 alot!

Damn that car is sharp. I would definitely recommend darker colors if you want the chrome to contrast better with the rest of the car. That's my personal taste however. I'm also really warming up to the sportcombi, it looks so sleek in that black outfit.

The SportCombi design is remarkably European, and very close to the point of repulsion among Americans.

Apparently, I prefer the Black striping of the Convertible's tail lamps over the Grey striping of the Sedan's tail lights. Overall, though, I prefer the sedan's lamps.

I bet SportCombi figures are exceptionally low. I just have the feeling.

I saw my first SportCombi yesterday and thought the same exact thing.

the sportcombi is so hot! i like it.

um, the side pic of the convertible made me realize how BIG the rear is, in a bad sorta-way.

why does the convertible still have rub strips? do they somehow help the structural rigidity?

I made the sportcombi my new wallpaper both at home and in the office!

Sans the 'cool' front and rear end treatments, these are still among the most anonymous vehicles on the road.

Why does the beltline on the SportCombi seem so low? The SportCombi reminds me of the Opel Combo! It comes off looking like a kid with a big forehead, theres just so much glass-area.

I prefer the sedan out of the three... this looks better than S60. But the convertile seems the same as in the previous gen, to me.

The stuff under the chrome on the grille looks very 90's Saab. A dark memory. Even the thing they did do right stylistically speaking, the grille, reminds me of the Subaru Legacy and Outback's next gen.(Which I consider superior to these) GM needs to devote a bit more time to Saab, or put it out of its misery.

I am a lot impressed with such a subtle makeover. The car looks gorgeous. I am not that thrilled of the interior, they should have come with something good. But it is not as quirky as before.

Like F_O_G said, I think it is the best look exterior on any Epsilon including the new 'bu.

In low-res pics it looks like a BMW 3er that somebody beat with a goofy stick.

The whole range is beautiful and offers something for everyone. It definitely shows promise for the future of Saab.

I think I'd take the SportCombi.
