engaged. All systems

As you drive the Saab 9-3 you can enjoy consistent road manners with instant response and feedback to your input. You’ll feel the ­inspiring ­sensation as the car slices through the bend like a carving ski. Agile and sporty beyond expectation. Along the road you are also assisted by an impressive range of electronic systems designed for active driving ­support. So get behind the wheel. And engage yourself to the fullest.

ESP® – Electronic Stability Program. With smooth, progressive action. Helps reduce skidding on slippery surfaces. Brakes one or more wheels and reduces the throttle opening if necessary.

EBA – Emergency Brake Assist. Amplifies braking force if you quickly press the brake pedal.

CBC – Cornering Brake Control. Reduces the tendency to pull to one side when you turn and brake simultaneously. Integrated in the ESP system. ®

TPMS – Tyre Pressure Monitoring System. Gives a warning message in the Saab Car Computer, indicating which tyre has insufficient pressure. (Optional)

Get a grip with

Saab XWD. Enter a sports shoe store and you’ll find an amazing number of options. Running, climbing, trekking, golfing or just street-smart? Imagine the difference it would make if you could have a pair of shoes that adapted automatically to what you do. That’s basically the thought behind the innovative Saab XWD cross-wheel drive system. It’s one of the most advanced systems available, developed together with Swedish all-wheel drive specialist Haldex. It continuously senses your way of driving and the road ­conditions. It then actively helps improve the car’s behaviour on the road. What you feel is better grip, faster acceleration, more agile cornering and improved stability. In all kinds of weather.

Grip and stability. If the front wheels hit an icy patch during acceleration, most of the torque is diverted to the rear wheels for enhanced grip and stability.

Activation. Saab XWD is an always active, fully automatic ­all-wheel drive system designed to improve the car’s handling and stability in all driving conditions. More than 20 sensors check the driver’s intentions and the vehicle’s changing state 100 times every second.

Unique integration. Saab XWD is developed in co-operation with Swedish all-wheel drive specialist Haldex. The unique way in which Saab integrates the XWD system in the car allows it to work smoothly together with the ESP and other electronic systems. ®

Efficiency. When cruising at a steady speed only a small amount of torque is delivered to the rear wheels. This helps support directional stability and reduces fuel consumption. eLSD. Electronically controlled rear limited slip differential. Balances torque between the rear wheels. Gives enhanced control in all conditions, allowing the car to turn even quicker and more easily. (Optional)

Acceleration. If you start on a dry surface, most of the torque is distributed to the rear wheels to avoid wheel slip and gain maximum acceleration.

Response. The XWD system is designed to react in just 80 milliseconds and continuously vary torque distribution between front and rear.

Cornering performance. On a twisting road, the Saab XWD system helps improve the car’s agile handling. It distributes more torque to the rear wheels, thus combining responsive curve behaviour with high stability.

Body levelling. Automatically keeps the car at an even ride height and the suspension linkage at optimal angles when carrying heavy loads or when towing.

Dark? T   urn the lights. Snow, rain and only brief daylight for a good part of the year makes driving in Scandinavia special. Your ability to see the road ahead is naturally important for safety but also in order to reduce fatigue. And to boost the fun of driving. So the Saab 9-3 has very efficient headlights and a range of innovative features designed to improve your sight. For instance, you can add bi-xenon cornering headlights and get a turning light that follows you through every curve.

Bi-xenon headlights. Provide 100 per cent more light which is also more daylight-like, ­compared to halogen lights. (Optional)

Bi-xenon cornering headlights. With a system that turns the headlights when you turn the steering wheel. Help further improve visibility on winding roads. At highway speeds the lights are raised slightly to provide a longer beam. (Optional)

Headlight washers. The first headlight cleaning system was innovated by Saab. Today, powerful high-pressure jets help keep the lenses clean. (Optional)

High-pressure washers. Three washer nozzles, each with two highpressure jets, help keep the windscreen clean.

Rain sensor. Starts the windscreen wipers automatically and adjusts wiper speed to suit the rain’s intensity. (Optional)

Auto-dimming mirrors. Automatically dim reflecting light from behind. Available for the interior and exterior mirrors. (Optional)

Aerodynamics. Carefully balanced to help improve both ­efficiency and high-speed stability.

Rightsizing. For more than thirty years Saab have developed smaller engines with more power. Today all the engines in the Saab 9-3 are turbocharged. So count on a p­ owerful and inspiring experience.

Experience Saab EcoPower Technology™

Saab EcoPower Technology™ is the power of efficiency. It is developed to combine increased respect for nature with better performance. It’s all about using resources wisely. Aerodynamics, turbocharging, weight and friction reduction are part of the formula. The result? Impressive power, fuel consumption and emissions. You can try it in the Saab 9-3 – whether you prefer a car that runs on petrol, diesel or renewable bioethanol. Count on a powerful experience. And the joy of driving with a cleaner conscience.

Saab Turbo. Turbocharging massively increases engine torque, especially in the medium rev range. This enables higher gearing, which is beneficial to fuel consumption while still offering exceptional overtaking acceleration.

Weight reduction. Approximately 60 percent of the bodyshell weight consists of high strength or ultra high strength steel. This helps reduce weight compared to regular steel. Several parts such as the bonnet, the boot lid and the rear bumper beam are made of aluminium alloy.

E85 bioethanol. We invented Saab BioPower, a flex-fuel technology that takes advantage of the higher octane rating in bioethanol. When running on E85 bioethanol, 85% of the fuel is made from renewable resources. This means reduced ­contribution of CO2 to the atmosphere compared to driving on petrol.

Adaptive idle. A new function designed to help reduce emissions during stop-and-go traffic. Lowers the engine idle when the gear lever is shifted to neutral and the clutch pedal is released. Automatically returns to normal idle when the clutch pedal is engaged. Available on manual transmission petrol and BioPower engines.

1.9TTiD What’s your preference – high performance or low emissions? Try a Saab 9-3 with the 1.9 TTiD engine and you won’t have to compromise. It features our innovative twostage turbo technology, so you can count on agility, sportiness and amazing response. This really is a car that encourages active driving for miles on end.

139g/km Despite all the available power, CO 2 emissions are as low as 139 g/km and mixed fuel consumption is just 5.3 litres per 100 km.

Figures apply to the Saab 9-3 Sport Sedan with 1.9 TTiD engine and 6-speed manual transmission.

180 hp

The 1.9 TTiD engine produces 180 hp and a massive 400 Nm of torque, allowing for swift overtaking.

We invented BioPower technology to let you enjoy the pleasure of driving with a cleaner conscience. It is a flex-fuel solution. So the car runs on renewable bioethanol (E85) but is just as easy to drive and own as a petrol- or dieselpowered car. Should you not find a pump with E85 you can just fill up with ­petrol. With our advanced turbo technology it is also designed to take ­advantage of the higher octane rating of E85, enabling two of the BioPower engines to produce 25 extra horsepower. So you can count on an ­ exhilarating driving experience boosted by the force of nature.

E85 bioethanol. With E85 bioethanol, 85% of the fuel is made from renewable resources. This means a reduced contribution of CO 2 to the atmosphere compared to driving on petrol. It also helps to reduce reliance on fossil fuels.
