2010 Saab 9-3
2010 Saab 9-3
Saab is no longer beholden to General Motors. They have been acquired by Dutch supercar manufacturer Spyker. While it may some time for the benefits of its new company to be fully realized, however, Saab managed to enter a new model of 9-3 into the lineup for 2010. The 9-3 in all of its variations is working within a truly crowed segment. The entry level luxury car market is dominated by German and Japanese models. The Swedish Saab can be overlooked but shouldn't. The 9-3 offers a spacious and safe automobile with a long time proven track record for safety and reliability. The 9-3 won't be a class leader among this kind of competition. However, it does offer a great deal of value in a segment where value normally takes a back seat to style and performance.

The base model for the Saab 9-3 is available in its 2.0T incarnation as a front wheel drive sedan powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged four cylinder producing 210 HP and shifting that power through either a 6 speed manual or 5 speed automatic transmission.

Under the stewardship of Spyker, Saab seems to have gained a new lease on life. Having launched the all-new Saab 9-5, and armed with plans for future products, Saab has moved forward on plans to produce an electric car.

To help bolster sales of its 2010 9-3, Saab announced a new lease program today -- its first as a semi-independent company.

Until Saab's newest models roll into dealer showrooms, the company must attract customers with its 9-3 -- and to help sweeten the deal, the automaker is cutting prices on 2010 models by 4-12 percent.

We know Spkyer has a lot on its plate these days, but perhaps one of the first things it should add to its “to-do” list is to restart Saab’s production lines. According to the Associated Press, there are only 500 new Saabs in stock at dealers across the U.S.
