Saab 9-3 Facelift Scooped Unmasked!
Who needs spy photographers when you’ve got readers that manage to take shots of totally undisguised future models like the 2008 MINI Clubman featured in our previous post or the Saab 9-3 Facelift shown here! Thanks to an eagle-eyed reader of Swedish magazine TeknikensVarld who was thoughtful enough to share the cell-phone pics we won’t have to wait till autumn to see how Saab will integrate the 9-5 grille to the 9-3.
However, the redesigned front-end and the Cadillac BLS door handles aren’t the only highlights of the facelifted 9-3. We spoke to a Saab PR and apart from learning that 2008 9-3 will be presented at the Frankfurt Show in September with European sales starting in October, we were informed that the new top-of-the-range 9-3 will be equipped with AWD and an upgraded version of GM’s 2.8-liter V6 Turbo
