Sedan and SportCombi buyers can choose a really cool Titan Gray Metallic exterior paint, and convertible shoppers get three new colors to pick from:

  • Electric blue metallic
  • Smoke beige metallic
  • Artic White

What else will you find on your new 2007 Saab 9-3? Standard wheels are 16-inch alloy, and you can get special 60th anniversary 17-inch wheels as an option. Also available is the Aero upgrade trim package. Aero models also offer more power engines, larger brakes, and a lowered, sport-tuned chassis. You can get manual or automatic transmissions on either the standard or Aero packages.

The 2007 Saab 9-3 comes with a 2.0 L 4-cylinder high-output turbocharged 210 HP engine. The 9-3 SportCombi wagon has a 250 HP turbocharged 2.8-liter V-6. The Aero comes with a 2.8 L turbocharged V-6 engine.

The cockpit of the 2007 Saab 9-3 has been re-engineered to arc around the driver. The gauges are backlit with green, which is easy on the eyes, and you can also opt for a night panel to help even more.

Of course you can expect leather trimmed seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, plush carpet floor mats, and even a cooled glove box.
